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.
