Product description

Appearing eight years after 'The French Lieutenant's Woman', this novel marked a departure for the author, being intended (in his own words) as: "a defence and illustration of an unfashionable philosophy, humanism, and also as an exploration of what it is to be English'. It is the richly evoked narrative of a contemporary Englishman's attempt to see himself and his time in the mirrors of his past and his present.

John Fowles (1926-2005) was an English novelist of international stature, critically positioned between modernism and postmodernism. His work reflects the influence of Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus, among others. Fowles' books have been translated into many languages, and several adapted as films. He was named by The Times newspaper of UK as one of the 50 greatest British writers since 1945. 'The Magus', which appeared in 1966, was the title which brought him to public prominence. He lived (and died) in Lyme Regis.

Our book is in very good condition, and a signed copy. Bound in brown cloth with gilt title etc to the spine, and protected by a very good unclipped D/W, it shows almost no signs of use, and just gentle age-browning of the pages generally. The binding is tight and the text clean. The D/W has one or two marks on each external face, but is otherwise in excellent condition, with very slight wear to the top of the spine. A very nice copy.
