[Novel] A Severed Head (Iris Murdoch)

A Severed Head

A farcical novel about the most convoluted love hexagon ever that proved to be the harbinger of the sexual revolution in Britain.

Positive: Negative:
Satirical, easy to digest prose Not particularly the most groundbreaking or riveting of stories
Interesting, likable, profound characters
Fairly interesting plot with a couple of surprises
Enlightening on the bourgeois culture of mid-XX century Britain
