Product description

Review

"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 The Independent)

"Suspend disbelief and enjoy a master storyteller" (Christie Hickman Sunday Express)

Synopsis

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 the complexities of the human mind. By turns disturbing, thrilling and seductive, The Magus is a cerebral feast.
