Publisher Comments:

The Magus is the story of Nicholas Urfe, a young Englishman who accepts a teaching assignment on a remote Greek island. There his friendship with a local millionaire evolves into a deadly game, one in which reality and fantasy are deliberately manipulated, and Nicholas must fight for his sanity and his very survival.

About the Author

John Fowles (1926-2005) was educated at Oxford and subsequently lectured in English at universities in Greece and the UK. The success of his first novel, The Collector, published in 1963, allowed him to devote all his time to writing. His books include the internationally acclaimed and bestselling novels The Magus, The French Lieutenant's Woman, and Daniel Martin. Fowles spent the last decades of his life on the southern coast of England in the small harbor town of Lyme Regis.

Bethany, September 20, 2006 (view all comments by Bethany)
I just finished The Magus last night and found it fascinating. It was published in 1965, so it definitely has a "vintage" feel to it; however, the plot twists and turns kept me interested. In addition, the references to mythology, ancient literature, philosophy and history added to the puzzle-like feel of this book. Enjoy!
