A man trapped in a millionare''s deadly game of political and sexual betrayal

Filled with shocks and chilling surprises, The Magus is a masterwork of contemporary literature. In it, a young Englishman, Nicholas Urfe, accepts a teaching position on a Greek island where his friendship with the owner of the islands most magnificent estate leads him into a nightmare. As reality and fantasy are deliberately confused by staged deaths, sensual encounters, and terrifying violence, Urfe becomes a desperate man fighting for his sanity and his life.

A work rich with symbols, conundrums and labrinthine twists of event, The Magus is as thought-provoking as it is entertaining, a work that ranks with the best novels of modern times.
John Fowles (1926 - 2005) won international recognition with his first published novel, The Collector (1963). His subsequent works include The Magus (1966), The French Lieutenant’s Woman (1969), Daniel Martin (1977), and others.
