About the Author
John Fowles (1926-2005) was educated at Oxford and subsequently lectured in English at universities in Greece and the UK. The success of his first novel, The Collector, published in 1963, allowed him to devote all his time to writing. His books include the internationally acclaimed and bestselling novels The Magus, The French Lieutenant's Woman, and Daniel Martin. Fowles spent the last decades of his life on the southern coast of England in the small harbor town of Lyme Regis.
Reviews
"Brilliant and colossal....Impossible to stop reading."--New York Review of Books
"Sumptuous....An extraordinary literary feat."--J.D. Scott, New York Times Book Review
"Great, good, lavish, eerie, fun....The Magus is a stunner....It is at once a pyrotechnical extravaganza, a wild, hilarious charade, a dynamo of suspense, a profoundly serious probing into the nature of moral consciousness, a dizzying, electrifying chase through the labyrinth of the soul... Read it in one sitting if possible--but read it."--Eliot Fremont-Smith, New York Times
