It is with the opening scene and within the quilted gray walls of this blasphemously unorthodox hospital room that John Fowles reaffirms his notorious ability to disarm the unwary, Having ensnared his readers with The Collector, toyed with them relentlessly in the Magus, given them no indication in the tantalizing inventions of The French Lieutenant's Woman of where his would be going in Daniel martin, he now invites them to a confrontation of startling explicitness. Book is definitely Fowles and in mint collectors condition. Mylar protected. Bookseller Inventory # 000635

About this title

Synopsis:

Miles Green wakes up in a mysterious hospital with no idea of how he got there or who he is. He definitely doesn't remember his wife, or his children's names. An impossibly shapely specialist doctor tells him his memory nerve-centre is connected to sexual activity, and calls in the even shapelier Nurse Cory to assist with treatment... In the most unorthodox of hospital rooms we eavesdrop on the serious discourse, virulent abuse and hilarious mockery of the erotic guerilla war that is Mantissa.
