Iris Murdoch : a life by Peter J Conradi( Book )
20 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 1,432 libraries worldwide
"Iris Murdoch's life - like her books - was full of extraordinary passions and profound relationships with some of the most inspiring and influential thinkers, artists, writers and poets of her time. During the war she pondered Aldous Huxley's doctrine that, for a writer, 'it is not what one has experienced but what one does with what one has experienced that matters, ' and she later wrote that the person who might help her better herself 'must not distinguish between me and my work'. She was sometimes portrayed as a bourgeois grandee living an unworldly, detached intellectual life, inventing a fantastical alternative world for compensation; but much that was thought to be romance in her work turns out to be reality. 'Real life is so much odder than any book, ' she wrote to a friend, and her life was as exciting and improbable as her fiction. Her novels are not just stylised comedies of manners with artificial complications, but reflect passionately lived experience, albeit wonderfully transmuted. Peter Conradi's biography returns the reader to her best work, through a quest for the living flesh-and-blood creature: the Irishwoman, the Communist-bohemian, the Treasury civil servant, the worker in Austrian refugee-camps, the RCA lecturer during the 1960s, the lifelong devotee of friendship conducted at a distancce and by letter, and the Buddhist-Christian mystic. It balances the formative years before the creative confusion of youth gave way to a greater stability, with an account of her maturity."--Jacket

Existentialists and mystics : writings on philosophy and literature by Iris Murdoch( Book )
16 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 1,065 libraries worldwide
"Best known for her novels and longer philosophical works, Iris Murdoch is also a brilliant essayist and critic. Existentialists and Mystics gathers together for the first time in one volume the most influential and inspiring of her essays and shorter pieces." "The selection, by Professor Peter Conradi, starts with an illuminating interview of Dame Iris Murdoch by Bryan Magee, and is organized to illustrate her training and development as a thinker, her rejection of the sterility of Anglo-American and Sartrean philosophers alike, and her journey toward Platonism and a practical mysticism. She negotiates her ideological opponents with elegance and scruple, and draws on a novelist's insight into art and literature to throw new light on philosophy."--Jacket
