From the library

Rather naughtily, I’ve picked this off the cataloguing shelf and have been reading it at lunchtimes. It’s not been off the premises!

Anyway, this is a workmanlike and spirited dash through Murdoch’s novels. Grouping them chronologically, it doesn’t treat them all at equal length, and I was disappointed there wasn’t more detail about The Sea The Sea and especially The Philosopher’s Pupil. But, a useful summary, and a springboard for my 2008-09 project: “A Murdoch A Month”, aiming to re-read them all in order of publication. As you do.
