Biography; Memoirs
In 1998 John Bayley wrote a 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. AUTHOR: John Bayley is the author of Alice, The Queer Captain, George s Lair and The Red Hat. In addition to Iris he has published two other memoirs with Duckworth, Iris & Friends and Widower s House. He was the Warton Professor of English at the University of Oxford and is a fellow of St Catherine s College.
