Bought 1990s?

Next in our Iris Murdoch A Month project and another typical Murdoch (if not so seemingly-parodic as The Black Prince), with tangled families, contrasting women, a reclusive writer, an angelic son and a cherubic chorus-figure.  A good read; pacy and funny as well as dark, with some interesting side characters and surprising plot turns.  The end, cheery and Oxfordian, punctures the philosophy and moralising.

Hopefully I’ll get to post my thoughts soon as I made my notes as I was going along and just need to note them in their "themes" and type up my thoughts!
