Signed and dedicated by John Bayley to the title page.
John Bayley's best-selling, critically acclaimed memoir of his wife, the great philosopher and novelist Iris Murdoch, who had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease since 1996. At times unbearably moving, at times poignantly comical, this memoir provides a fitting memorial to Dame Iris. It is an enchanting portrait of a remarkable marriage and an inspiration for anyone whose life is affected by Alzheimer's.
The book is in very good condition, the dustwrapper is very good too but with just a few small bumps. It has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
