Summary
"Something Special, set in Iris Murdoch's native city of Dublin in the 1950s, tells the story of independent-minded Yvonne, nearly too old to be a bride, who continues to believe that there is more to life than marriage to Sam, the dutiful Jewish man who is courting her. Living at home with an overbearing mother whose fantasy world is rekindled by the visit of a Christmas card salesman, and a stern uncle who fears he will have to support her, Yvonne comes to the painful realization that she can no longer maintain the balance between her bold spirit and the impending truths of a forestalled adulthood."--BOOK JACKET
