I was dreading doing the last two books in the IM Project but was pleasantly surprised by this one, which I had only read once before. The characters and plot are rich and satisfying, there is a good collection of her archetypes and themes, and Anax, the best dog in Iris Murdoch. There are only a few moments that evidence her Alzheimer’s and a “tassellated” scarf is quite a nice image, actually. A relief, and a good read as well.
