Sacred Space, Beloved City: Iris Murdoch's London is a celebration of Iris Murdoch's love for London and establishes her amongst distinguished "London writers" such as William Blake, Charles Dickens and Virginia Woolf. Individual chapters focus on the City, London art galleries and museums, the Post Office Tower (now the BT Tower), the statue of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, Whitehall and the River Thames. Each chapter identifies intricate links between the environment and human consciousness and is accompanied by a corresponding walk that links Murdoch's plots to landmarks and routes. All essays and walks are illustrated with sketches by Paul Laseau. These drawings not only illustrate locations for identification but also conjure their atmosphere so that readers engage with how Murdoch's characters experience their surroundings. The final London Glossary is an annotated index of the London place names mentioned in all of Murdoch's 26 novels.
