REVIEWS
"Dazzlingly entertaining and inventive" * The Times * "One of the most ambitious tours de force in many years... There are pages one races through to see what happens. She is a virtuoso at description" * Daily Mail * "She was a brilliantly clever woman" -- Dame Judi Dench "There is no doubt in my mind that Iris Murdoch is one of the most important novelists now writing in English...The power of her imaginative vision, her intelligence and her awareness and revelation of human truth are quite remarkable" * The Times * "A fabulous novel...funny and poignant and is arguably Murdoch's finest hour" -- Gary Kemp * Daily Express *

Details

The sea- turbulent and leaden, transparent and opaque, magician and mother... When Charles Arrowby, over sixty, a demi god of the theatre- director, playwright and actor - retires from his glittering London world in order to `abjure magic and become a hermit', it is to the sea that he turns. He hopes at least to escape from `the woman' - but unexpectedly meets one whom he loved long ago. His Buddhist cousin, James, also arrives. He is menaced by a monster from the deep. Charles finds his `solitude' peopled by the drama of his own fantasies and obsessions.
