The Ebony Tower Cover

 

Review-A-Day

"'The Cloud,' the last story in the collection, is my favorite work of Fowles's career, and the knowledge that it's there at the end is in part what keeps bringing me back to the book....It is one of the saddest, loveliest, and sharpest stories I have ever read. And it is a fitting end to The Ebony Tower, leaving the reader with the question of where story and myth break off, and life begins." Jill Owens, Powells.com (read the entire Powells.com review)

Publisher Comments:

This bestselling collection, comprising a novella, three stories, and a translation of a medieval French tale, echoes themes from John Fowles's internationally celebrated novels as it probes the fitful relations between love and hate, pleasure and pain, fantasy and reality.

Review:

"If you haven't been reading Fowles, [you'll find these tales] magical enough....If you have...you'll have the pleasure of making connections." Theodore Solotaroff, The New York Times Book Review
