Martin Lynch-Gibbon believes he can possess both a beautiful wife and a delightful lover. But when his wife, Antonia, suddenly leaves him for her psychoanalyst, Martin is plunged into an intensive emotional re-education. He attempts to behave beautifully and sensibly. Then he meets a woman whose demonic splendour at first repels him and later arouses a consuming and monstrous passion. As his Medusa informs him, 'this is nothing to do with happiness'.

Intellectuals behaving badly!
The combination of Iris Murdoch's writing with Derek Jacobi's brilliant reading.
The unpredictability and the humour.
Derek Jacobi had the perfect voice for these characters! He really captured their personalities.
I've read this book but this audible book was one of those rare events where you get even more from hearing it, mainly because of Derek Jacobi's brilliant performance.
