About the Author:

Jeffrey Meyers, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, has recently published Samuel Johnson: The Struggle (2008), The Genius and the Goddess: Arthur Miller and Marilyn Monroe (2009), George Orwell: Life and Art (2010) - his fifth work on Orwell - and John Huston: Courage and Art (2011). Thirty of his books have been translated into fourteen languages and seven alphabets, and published on six continents.

Review:

"These previously unpublished letters from Murdoch and her husband John Bayley to Meyers are literarily informative and personally touching; and Meyers's own viewpoint on her writing and character, based on his personal contact with her and her husband, is very valuable. His view of the memoirs by Bayley and A.N. Wilson, which seem to take opposing points of view about her, introduces much-needed balance into the discussion of her personality and character." - Stephen E. Tabachnick, Professor of English Literature, University of Memphis, USA

Book Description Palgrave Pivot. Hardcover. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 126 pages. Through his work as a literary biographer, Jeffrey Meyers met Murdoch in 1978. Over the next 17 years the two continued to correspond, completing an interview for the Paris Review Writers at Work series and becoming friends. In her letters, published for the first time in this volume, Murdoch discusses literature; her unprovoked quarrel with Rebecca West; production of her play The Black Prince; her political views; and her laments at the difficulty writing at the onset of Alzheimers. This book also includes a memoir of Iris, two interviews with her (with important deleted passages), and a discussion of memoirs by A. N. Wilson and John Bayley. This lively and interesting book, which makes a significant contribution to our understanding of a major modern novelist, will be warmly welcomed by both scholars and readers. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 9781137352415
