A man trapped in a millionare's deadly game of political and sexual betrayal.

Filled with shocks and chilling surprises, The Magus is a masterwork of contemporary literature. In it, a young Englishman, Nicholas Urfe, accepts a teaching position on a Greek island where his friendship with the owner of the islands most magnificent estate leads him into a nightmare. As reality and fantasy are deliberately confused by staged deaths, erotic encounters, and terrifying violence, Urfe becomes a desperate man fighting for his sanity and his life. A work rich with symbols, conundrums and labrinthine twists of event, The Magus is as thought-provoking as it is entertaining, a work that ranks with the best novels of modern times.

About the Author:

John Fowles (1926 - 2005) won international recognition with his first published novel, The Collector (1963). His subsequent works include The Magus (1966), The French Lieutenant’s Woman (1969), Daniel Martin (1977), and others.

Review:

"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
