      My new book is primarily a work of literary criticism about the British novelist Iris Murdoch and the music and sound in her novels. I discuss various examples of the way she deploys sound and silence, how music appears as a theme and so on. I also survey musical works setting her words, by composers including Malcolm Williamson and William Matthias.
