Bran Nicol traces a fascinating double movement at work in Murdochs fiction, where the past figures as an elusive site of truth and an inescapable source of trauma. Through persuasive readings of some of her key novels Nicol demonstrates that the past is continually made present in Murdochs fiction in a number of ways: through guilt, nostalgia, the uncanny, and also by way of art and rational investigation.The book is the first to examine her first-person retrospective novels as a separate group within the larger body of her work.

In these novels, the concern with the past is intensified by the peculiar synthesis of form and content. The book also provides an accessible and lively consideration of how Murdochs fiction and theory relate to some of the key currents of twentieth-century thought: postmodernism and poststructuralism, Bakhtins poetics, modernism and psychoanalysis
