John Fowles won international recognition with The Collector, his first published title, in 1963. He was immediately acclaimed as an outstandingly innovative writer of exceptional imaginative power. This reputation was confirmed with the appearance of his subsequent works including The Aristos, The Magus, The French Lieutenant's Woman, The Ebony Tower, Daniel Martin, Mantissa and A Maggot. John Fowles died in 2005.Review:
"A remarkable and brilliant work of fiction...the imaginative power of the novel is astounding, the technical virtuosity and structural daring equally so" * The Times * "This altogether admirable novel serves, as all literature should, the forces of subversion. It is a worthy companion to The French Lieutenant's Woman, which does the same thing, but bolder in its experimentation and hence more notable as an artistic achievement" -- Anthony Burgess * Observer * "Compelling and passionate fiction... Fowles's darting imagination skims across the landscape of two and a half centuries" * Times Literary Supplement * "Brilliant and compelling...he deploys his usual seductive narrative gifts to great effect" * Guardian *
