...sometimes the book seems to waver under the weight of so much meaning. But then, Smith, like Iris herself, has little time for small talk. At its core, "The Enigma of Iris Murphy" is a moving meditation on the meaning of a life well-lived.

Synopsis

Fiction. A prison's visitation room; a veterinarian who understands the thoughts of animals; an Omaha police sergeant; a banking executive who consoles her dying friend; a librarian who sleeps with giraffes; an elegant grifter whose well-behaved grandsons disguise her sleight of hand thefts—all linked by the life of Iris Murphy.
