Books: On the bedside table of Ruth Spellman

'I'm reading The Sandcastle by Iris Murdoch. The book tells the story of schoolmaster Bill Mor, who lives a quiet life with his wife. Their life is disrupted when a young woman arrives at Mor's school to paint the headmaster's portrait. As Mor's teenage children and wife struggle against the impact of the artist's arrival, a story of love, guilt and political ambition unfolds.' Ruth Spellman is chief executive of Investors in People.
