    PDF/EPUB Iris Murdoch Ë Ë A Word Child Epub à A Word Epub / word kindle, child book, A Word book, A Word Child EpubOne of my favorites by by Ms Murdoch a great place to start if you've never read her fiction very darkly funny also about mad love The ‘word child’ of the title is Hilary Burde the narrator Using one of her rare first person narratives the book has an interesting structure with each chapter headed by a day of the week This is based on the order and routine Hilary has attempted to establish for his life by having certain things that he always does on certain days of the week and the novel follows him as this routine is gradual

    PDF/EPUB Iris Murdoch Ë Ë A Word Child Epub à A Word Epub / word kindle, child book, A Word book, A Word Child EpubThe most egregious facet of my Vintage Classics paperback edition of Iris Murdoch’s “A Word Child” is undoubtedly the clumsy uote on the front cover from The Times “Iris Murdoch is incapable of writing without fascinating and beautiful colour” While my sanity refuses me any scope to contest the fascinating colour of Iris’s writing it would be crass and unacceptably unfair to attribute this particular book with beautiful colour as it is with a master craftswoman’s artful poise that Iris draws a very real monochrome yellow rendition of LondonInto this necessarily murky landscape Iris captures the complex frailties of human relationships and the fragile edifice of social behaviour as she draws the reader through the guilt ridden habitual purgatory of the protagonist Hilary Burde’s passive reminisc
