THE MAGUS

JOHN FOWLES    Book Number: 87278    Product format: Paperback

Now regarded as a classic, the clue to this novel is in its original title, The God Game. 25 year old brigadier's son, Oxford graduate and recently-orphaned Nicholas Urfe has a vast addiction to breaking girls' hearts. 'By the time I left Oxford I was a dozen girls away from virginity'. Set in 1951, he takes up a job teaching English in an all-boys school on the Greek island of Phraxos. There he finds himself embroiled in the deceptions of a master trickster. Nicholas becomes enchanted with Lili who seems to be a kind of prisoner of a charismatic Greek landowner, art collector, psychologist and philosopher called Maurice Conchis. Bristling with literary and artistic references, domestic abuse and racism as was prevalent in the era. A Vintage Classic paperback, 565pp.
