1966 The Magus
What Our Customers Say...
An Important Work, Early Edition
The Magus was the first novel John Fowles wrote but his third to be published after The Collector (1963) and The Aristos (1964). He started writing it in the 1950s, under the original title of The Godgame. He based it partly on his experiences on the Greek island of Spetses, where he taught English for two years at the Anargyrios School. It tells the story of Nicholas Urfe, a teacher on a small Greek island. Urfe finds himself embroiled in psychological illusions of a master trickster that become increasingly dark and serious.
In original paper wraps. Externally, sound, though with some edgewear and marks. Internally, generally firmly bound. Pages are quite bright, though with a few instances of foxing throughout.
