Introduction by Declan Kiberd
The scene is Dublin in 1916. As rebellion looms, tension mounts in the sombre, rain-soaked Dublin streets. A single Anglo-Irish family provides the diverse characters: Pat Dumay, a Catholic and an Irish patriot; his pious mother pursuing her private war with his step-father; Pat?s English-Protestant cousin Andrew Chase-White, an officer in King Edward?s Horse and Frances, the girl he loves. Weaving between them all moves Millie Kinnard ? fast, feminist, and only just respectable.
Iris Murdoch was born in Dublin in 1919 of Anglo-Irish parents, grew up in London and was educated at Oxford and Cambridge. She is the author of 26 novels and several works of philosophy. She died in 1999.
