WITH AN AFTERWORD FROM THE AUTHOR
‘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 Times
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.
