Iris Murdoch was an Irish and British writer whose stories were admired for their intelligence and wit. Her plots were typically convoluted with multiple characters representing diverse philosophical positions. She had a knack for analyzing and articulating the complexities in sexual relationships, morality, and the power of the unconscious. In addition to the 26 novels she published, Murdoch wrote plays and literary criticism. Under the Net was her first novel and is one of the most celebrated. In 1988, it was selected as one of Modern Library's 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.
