Bell (Vintage Classics Murdoch Series)

«She's writing about the only things that matter – love, goodness and how to be happy»

Patrick Gale, Independent

'In this holy community she would play the witch.'

Imber Court is a quiet haven for lost souls, a utopia for those who can neither live in the world, nor out of it. But beneath the gentle daily routines of this community run currents of supressed desire, religious yearning and a legend of disastrous love. Charming, indolent Dora arrives in their midst, and half-unwittingly conjures these submerged things to the surface.

'A tragi-comic masterpiece... a magnificent novel.' Susan Hill, The Lady

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY SARAH PERRY

VINTAGE CLASSICS MURDOCH: Funny, subversive, fearless and fiercely intelligent, Iris Murdoch was one of the great writers of the twentieth century. To celebrate her centenary Vintage Classics presents special editions of her greatest and most timeless novels.

Anmeldelser

«She's writing about the only things that matter – love, goodness and how to be happy»

Patrick Gale, Independent

«The plot is both comical and moving, and it’s a book that everyone who’s ever been tempted to throw in the towel and become a hermit should read....despite the grand subjects at issue, the novel’s tone is not at all dry or didactic – it is, on the contrary, wonderfully lively and poignant at the same time, tender with a sprightly social comedy reminiscent of PG Wodehouse and Barbara Pym»

Guardian

«Her characters are described with loving exactitude and in such depth that their struggles to define what it means to live a good life take on dramatic force»

New York Times

«How bloody good her novels are – how intelligent, how lucent, how divinely crazy. They’re fun – I’d forgotten that»

Sarah Waters, Guardian
