Waterstones Says

A rampaging novel of ideas set on a fictional Greek island, The Magus revels in deceit and deception, illusion and identity. Schoolteacher Nicholas Urfe finds himself under the spell of the exotic Conchis in a delirious psychological game rendered with customary maverick style by the great John Fowles.

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'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, Independent

'Suspend disbelief and enjoy a master storyteller.' - Christie Hickman, Sunday Express
