Cloth, 8vo, 21 cm, , 522 pp. From the blurb: "Stuart Cuno has decided to become good. Not believing in God, he invents his own methods, which include celibacy, chastity and the abandonment of a promising academic career. Interfering friends and relations question his sincerity, his sanity and his motives. Stuart's step-brother Edward Baitram is tormented by guilt because he has, he believes, killed his best friend. He dreams sometimes of redemption, sometimes of suicide. Edward is sent on a 'journey to the underworld' to find his natural father, the painter Jesse Baitram, whom he has not seen since childhood. He discovers a father strangely different from his expectations, and succumbs to an enchantment quite unlike the redemptive cure for which he has been seeking; and meets perhaps the one person in the world who has the power to forgive him. Meanwhile Stuart's moral apprenticeship is causing nothing but trouble. Coming to rescue Edward, Stuart provokes a final catastrophic clash of forces. Funny, compelling and extremely moving, Iris Murdoch's new novel is about obsessive guilt-ridden despair, and the difficult problem of how to try to be good - and the various magical devices which console those who are sensible enough not to try.

Cloth, 8vo, 23 cm, ,  pp. From the blurb: "Many years ago Gerard Hernshaw and his friends 'commissioned' one of their number to write a political book. Time passes and opinions change. Why should we go on supporting a book we detest? Rose Curtland asks. The brotherhood of Western intellectuals versus the book of history? Jenkin Riderhood suggests. The theft of a wife further embroils the situation. Moral indignation must be separated from political disagreement". Tamar Hernshaw has a different trouble and a terrible secret. Can one die of shame? In another quarter a suicide pact seems the solution. Duncan Cambus thinks that since it is a tragedy, someone must die. Someone dies. Rose, who has gone on loving without hope, at least deserves a reward."

Cloth, 8vo, 21 cm, , 505 pp. From the blurb: "This is a story about honour and innocence, lost and found, and about the vicissitudes of a deep friendship between two women. Guy Openshaw, dying, begs his wife Gertrude to remarry and be happy after he has gone, but Gertrude feels this to be impossible. She is consoled by the arrival, fresh from years in a convent, of her old college friend, Anne Cavidge, who is returning to the world: "Mary Magdalene in reverse," says Gertrude as she decks Anne with jewels. Will they settle down together and "do virtuous things", now that Gertrude is a rich benevolent widow? Gertrude is surrounded with love, and also with eligible single men, among them the Count, son of a Polish exile. The Count, obsessively reliving his father’s patriotic anguish, is a Conscript in the army of duty and in the imaginary forces of a "true Poland". A soldier of a very different sort is Tim Reede, a hanger-on of the Openshaws, painter, scrounger, story-teller and lost soul. He and his mistress Daisy Barrett sit in pubs and curse the world and dream of rich marriages. The Count, who is also dreaming of marriage, is paralysed by honourable scruples, and meanwhile Anne mourns her lost God and discovers her private and personal Christ. Desires and obligations, guilt and money, bedevil the issue. Tim commits a crime, Anne encounters the snares of the world, both hope for a renewal of innocence. There is an ordeal by water. All the characters are forced into some degree of heroism, and at last muddle and lies are cleared away, and sins are forgiven, though not everybody gains his heart’s desire."

Cloth, 8vo, 24 cm, , 563 pp. From the blurb: For years Alfred Ludens has pursued mathematician and philosopher Martus Vallar, who possesses, Ludens believes, a secret of great significance to mankind. Ludens's friends, painter Jack Sheerwater and ex-priest Gildas Heme, are sceptical about this quest. Another friend, Patrick Fenman, is dying, convinced that enchanter Marcus has put a curse upon him. Marcus, who has disappeared, is tracked down by the faithful Ludens. But has Marcus really found some vital 'missing link', or is he simply insane? Is he cruel or kind, can he raise a man from the dead? Ludens and Marcus are both Jewish, and Jewish matters, including the appearance of a zealous rabbi, complicate the situation. Perhaps Marcus is really seeking God; or is he perhaps another victim of the Holocaust? Four women. Jack's wife Franca, his mistress Alison, Marcus's daughter Irina, and an angelic American, Maisie Tether, do their various bests to sort things out."

The elderly Rozanov has returned home to write his 'great book', which will reveal his 'secret doctrine'. But he has other troubles, including a bizarre plan which involves those around him in agonising dilemmas. George's mother and brother Tom, and Father Bernard/the God-hating priest: all become entangled in the philosopher's magic circle of conspiracy and power. George, self-elected black sheep, hopes for nothing less than salvation and redemption; others, amongst whose anxious number are his powerful wife Stella and his mistress Diane, wish to 'save George from himself'. At the Spa Institute, centre of the town's social life, the citizens bathe in the hot spring and hope to be cleansed of their sins.
