The Red and the Green

£14.99

Product description

This, the 9th of Murdoch's novels, is set in Dublin, at the time of the Easter Rebellion of 1916, and portrays a wide range of characters caught up in this turbulent time of the country's history.

Dame Jean Iris Murdoch DBE (1919–1999) was an Anglo-Irish novelist and philosopher, best known for her novels about good and evil, sexual relationships, morality, and the power of the unconscious. Her first published novel, "Under the Net", was selected in 1998 as one of Modern Library's 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. Her books include "The Bell" (1958), "A Severed Head" (1961), "The Nice and the Good" (1968), "The Black Prince" (1973), "Henry and Cato" (1976); "The Sea, the Sea" won the Booker Prize in 1978. In 2008, The Times ranked Murdoch twelfth on a list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945". Her final novel "Jackson's Dilemma" (1995) appeared a couple of years before her diagnosis of Alzheimer's was made.

Our copy is in generally good condition, and comes with a dust jacket which is somewhat grubby generally, and has suffered a small loss at the top of the spine, but is unclipped and strikingly designed by Margaret Benyon OBE, a well-known artist sometimes called the "mother of British holography". The book itself is bound in black cloth with gilt titles etc on the spine, and shows no signs of wear externally. The long edge of the text block has a few brown marks, and the top page edges are darkened (see photos). Inside, the binding is firm and all pages are clean, if very lightly browned. The pencilled name of a previous owner appears on the front fep. A nice copy.
