About this title

Synopsis:

Iris Murdoch's 24th novel, published in her 71st year, tells of Alfred Ludens' long search for Professor Marcus Vallar, convinced he possesses a secret fundamental to the human condition. But is Vallar a genius, a madman or a saint? What Ludens discovers is certainly not what he expects.

From the Publisher:

Iris Murdoch's 24th novel, a San Francisco Chronicle bestseller, explores the meaning of life in a story of love and betrayal, faith and doubt.

"Murdoch works with an intellectual daring most writers only dream of." - The Philadelphia Inquirer
