The Green Knight by Iris Murdoch, 1st/1st, 1993
London: Chatto & Windus, (1993). First edition. This copy is near fine. The dust wrapper is wonderfully illustrated, with a portrait of the author on the rear side. The boards are free from chips and marks and the text blocks are generally bright and white, with light signs of shelf wear present on the bottom right corner. Overall, this is a highly presentable copy in near fine condition.
An attempt by the sharp, feral, and uncommonly intelligent Lucas Graffe to murder his sensual and charismatic half-brother Clement is interrupted by a stranger- whom Lucas strikes and leaves for dead. When the stranger mysteriously reappears, with specific demands for reparation, the Graffes’ circle of idiosyncratic family and friends is disrupted—for the demands are bizarre, intrusive, and ultimately fatal.
