To Frank she reveals her innermost self - her journey from Oxford student to apprentice writer in bohemian London. Then there are love-letters to David Hicks, a teacher in Cairo, with whom she duelled and fought. These carry an intensity of feeling and convey an extraordinary human drama, seductive, passionate, wise, witty and ultimately heart-breaking. A Writer at War also includes the journal that Murdoch, as a touring actress, kept during late August 1939, conveying the uniquely strange atmosphere of that count-down to Armageddon. This treasury of writing by one of the great women writers and thinkers of the 20th century sheds new light on a brilliant mind in development, and is also a remarkable historical document of life behind the scenes in the Second World War."--Publisher description."@en ;
