Product description

On a remote Greek Island, Nicholas Urfe finds himself embroiled in the deceptions of a master trickster. As reality and illusion intertwine, Urfe is caught up in the darkest of psychological games. John Fowles expertly unfolds a tale that is lush with over-powering imagery in a spellbinding exploration of human complexities. By turns disturbing, thrilling and seductive, "The Magus" is a feast for the mind and the senses.

Review quote

"A major work of mounting tensions in which the human mind is the guinea-pig... Mr Fowles has taken a big swing at a difficult subject and his hits are on the bull's eye" Sunday Telegraph "A deliciously toothsome celebration of wanton story-telling" Sunday Times "A splendidly sustained piece of mystification" Financial Times "One of those that's best read as a teenager, but once read you'll never forget it" -- Katy Guest The Independent
