Win a bundle of Iris Murdoch novels, including our November Book of the Month, The Black Prince, plus a newly-designed, limited-edition Booker Prize tote bag
To celebrate our November Book of the Month – The Black Prince by Iris Murdoch – we are giving you the chance to win a bundle of novels by the author and a limited-edition, Booker Prize tote bag featuring an updated design for 2023.
The set includes six titles from Murdoch’s backlist, published in the UK by Vintage Classics: The Black Prince; A Fairly Honourable Defeat; The Sandcastle; The Sea, The Sea; The Bell; and Under the Net.
Murdoch’s 1973 Booker-shortlisted title The Black Prince is part-thriller, part-love story: a book that explores the intricacies and inconsistencies of human relationships.
The Booker Prize tote bags are designed by illustrator Adam Simpson and feature Iris, the newly-named Booker Prize trophy. Each bag is emblazoned with the iconic line taken from within The Black Prince, penned by Murdoch and uttered by its protagonist Arnold Baffin: ‘Every book is the wreck of a perfect idea’.
To be in with a chance of winning, simply enter your details below by 12:00 GMT on Thursday, November 30, 2023. This competition is open to readers anywhere in the world.
