Her novels evoked beautifully the atmosphere of the country gardens (The Bell, 1958) or the mysterious London streets (The Time of the Angels, 1968) in which they were set, with their characters engaged in intriguing love relationships, from the totally innocent to the wholly weird." The Times "Iris Murdoch really knows how to write, can tell a story, delineate a character, catch an atmosphere with deadly accuracy" -- John Betjeman "Of all the novelists that have made their bow since the war she seems to me to be the most remarkable-behind her books one feels a power of intellect quite exceptional in a novelist" Sunday Times "A distinguished novelist of a rare kind" -- Kingsley Amis "A tragi-comic masterpiece... A magnificent novel" -- Susan Hill The Lady
