By Iris Murdoch
Al tiempo que huye de una tormentosa vida sentimental, el hombre se empeña en revivir su primera pasión amorosa por una mujer que los angeles vida ha convertido en un ama de casa escuálida, mientras los angeles presencia insomne del mar le devuelve todas sus obsesiones, los espectros del pasado, los fantasmas de sus errores y los angeles angustia de un futuro cansado.
Merecedor en 1978 del Booker Prize, El mar, el mar constituye un punto álgido de los angeles madurez narrativa de su autora, cuya prosa hipnótica nos envuelve aquí en un incesante torrente de imágenes, historias, personajes y reflexiones que resuenan en l. a. mente del lector como el rumor del oleaje al anochecer.
"Peregrinos de l. a. lectura, perdidos en el árido desierto de las malas novelas: venid a Iris Murdoch."
