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.
