Description - Iris Murdoch As I Knew Her by A. N. Wilson

Andrew Wilson had John Bayley as his tutor at Oxford where he met Iris Murdoch. He remained a close friend of them both throughout her life. It was at Iris's pleading in 1988 that Andrew agreed to write her biography. Bound to be controversial, Andrew pulls no punches in his view on the recent cinematic portrayal of Iris as an Alzheimer's victim. Instead he gives us back the fiercely intelligent novelist and philosopher, and shows us a relationship that was deeply loving yet profoundly eccentric and very unconventional for its day.
