Bidisha on Iris Murdoch
National Portrait Gallery, 7pm
Writer, critic and broadcaster Bidisha celebrates novelist and philosopher Iris Murdoch, whose portrait by Tom Phillips conveys her extraordinary presence and outward serenity. Bidisha argues that Murdoch, whose work combines morality with satire, and low passion with high yearning, is one of the most significant novelists since the second world war.
This event is part of 'Portraits of Writers', a series of talks in collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery, to coincide with the exhibition 'On Paper: Portraits of Writers', which will run in the Gallery until February 2013.
