The Sea, the Sea

The Sea, the Sea
Murdoch, Iris; Kinzie, Mary (Introduction by)

Charles Arrowby, leading light of England's theatrical set, retires from glittering London to an isolated home by the sea. He plans to write a memoir about his great love affair with Clement Makin, his mentor, both professionally and personally, and amuse himself with Lizzie, an actress he has strung along for many years. None of his plans work out, and his memoir evolves into a riveting chronicle of the strange events and unexpected visitors-some real, some spectral-that disrupt his world and shake his oversized ego to its very core.


(1978) Murdoch depicts a tale of the strange obsessions that haunt a self-satisfied playwright as he writes his memoirs.
