Avril Horner and Anne Rowe will give an illustrated talk on Living on Paper: Letters from Iris Murdoch 1934-1995 (to be published by Chatto & Windus in November 2015). They will reveal how Iris Murdoch’s personal letters, published here for the first time, give rich and occasionally contentious new insights into the life, work and loves of one of Britain’s most important twentieth-century writers.
Avril Horner is an Emeritus Professor of English Literature at Kingston University. Her research interests focus mainly on women’s writing and Gothic fiction. Dr Anne Rowe is Associate Professor in English Literature and Director of the Iris Murdoch Archive Project at Kingston University.
