Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

John Fowles (1926-2005) has the distinction of being both a best-selling novelist and one whose work has earned the respect of academic critics. This vibrant collection of original essays sheds new critical light on all of Fowles's writings, with a special focus on The French Lieutenant's Woman as the most widely studied of his works. The stellar cast of contributors offers an outstanding range of expertise on Fowles, providing fresh reassessments and new perspectives on his fiction and non-fiction.

About the Author

JAMES ACHESON was formerly Senior Lecturer in English at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. His previous publications include a volume on John Fowles in the Palgrave Modern Novelists series.
