Description: Praise for Iris Murdoch and The Sea, The Sea : Winner of the Booker Prize "Profound and delicious for many reasons . . . a multilayered working out of her feelings about the intensity of romantic experience. . . [it] also happens to be intelligently and sympathetically concerned with four of my favorite things: swimming, eating, drinking and talking . . . it is an ideal beach book--especially if you enjoy the cooler and pebblier and spookier northern sort of beach." --Dwight Garner, The New York Times "A joy to read: a rollicking story that seems endlessly to be building towards some awful, hilarious, frightening conclusion." -- Harper's Bazaar "Sublime [and] profound . . . She takes great care to imbue the house, the sea, the surroundings--everything--with depth and significance . . . exhilarating." --Sam Jordison, The Guardian , "Booker club" "This comedy is lit with the aplomb of true comedy's calm understanding of moral obliquity . . . There is the genuine weight of obsession in Arrowby's narrative, but also the mere weight of iteration and ingenuity." --Martin Greenberg, The New York Times Book Review "Murdoch's subtly, blackly humorous digs at human vanity and self-delusion periodically build into waves of hilarity, and Arrowby is a brilliant creation: a deeply textured, intriguing yet unreliable narrator, and one of the finest character studies of the 20th century." --Sophia Martelli, The Guardian "The author renders her immorality play with painstaking attention to atmosphere: the changing hues of the waves, the slippery amber rocks, the strangely damp house are all made palpable. The old scandals are shrewdly reexamined, and Murdoch's style is as saline as the sea below." -- Time "One of the best and most influential writers of the 20th century . . . She connected goodness, against the temper of the times, not with the quest for an authentic identity so much as with the happiness that can come about when that quest can be relaxed." --Peter Conradi, The Guardian
