A Severed Head by Iris Murdoch

Far too sophisticated for me I suppose is the answer.

Yet I can read it. In a strange way it compels me.

I don’t find it all funny but can see how as a play it could be fabulously funny.

I think the characters are revolting. It makes me even more sick to think that it’s been written by a woman. Ugh!

I’m quite bewildered by it.

  1. What a great cover! Somehow we never read this in high school, though we studied other CanLit.

  2. The missing words are “In a strange way it compells me” and “It makes me even more sick to think that it’s been written by a woman.”
