"She lived a life dedicated entirely to her art."
 
Open Road Integrated Media presents the early works of Iris Murdoch (1919-1999), one of the most influential British writers of the twentieth century. She was awarded the 1978 Booker Prize for THE SEA, THE SEA, won the Royal Society Literary Award in 1987, and was made a Dame of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth.
 
Watch Iris’s admirers—including literary agent Ed Victor; Dr. Anne Rowe, Director of the Centre for Iris Murdoch Studies; and fellow novelist and friend Josephine Hart—discuss the importance of Iris’s work today.

Happy Iris Murdoch Day!
