Iris Murdoch

Iris Murdoch's books have that rare quality of being both intensely philosophical and seriously addictive. One of the most prolific authors of the 20th Century, Murdoch churned out over a book a year in her prime and left the world with 26 novels, 8 books of philosophy, and 8 plays under her belt. Amazingly, the quality of her books didn't suffer due to the quantity of them. Her fiction boldly mixes the plot twists of an adventure story, the cliffhangers of thrillers, and the comedic and moral leanings of ancient Greek playwrights, concocting an enchanting stew of brain food. For anyone interested in literary craft, try out Murdoch's novels The Unicorn or The Black Prince, or fall in love with her vicariously in her biopic Iris.
