The French Lieutenant's Woman

by John Fowles

Little, Brown And Company | September 1, 1998 | Trade Paperback

Not yet rated | write a review
As part of Back Bay''s ongoing effort to make the works of John Fowles available in uniform trade paperback editions, two major works in the Fowles canon are reissued to coincide with the publication of Wormholes, the author''s long-awaited new collection of essays and occasional writings.

Perhaps the most beloved of Fowles''s internationally bestselling works, The French Lieutenant''s Woman is a feat of seductive storytelling that effectively invents anew the Victorian novel. "Filled with enchanting mysteries and magically erotic possibilities" (New York Times), the novel inspired the hugely successful 1981 film starring Meryl Streep and Jeremy Irons and is today universally regarded as a modern classic.

In A Maggot, originally published in 1985, Fowles reaches back to the eighteenth century to offer readers a glimpse into the future. Time magazine called the result "hypnotic....A remarkable achievement. Part detective story, part crackling courtroom drama....An immensely rich and readable novel".

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.

From Our Editors

Universally regarded as a contemporary classic, The French Lieutenant's Woman is a feat of seductive storytelling that effectively reinvents the Victorian novel. The basis of the successful 1981 film starring Meryl Streep and Jeremy Irons, this is a rich and powerful story by one of the preeminent literary figures of our time.
