Journals by John Fowles

Book Description

The first volume of John Fowles's Journals ended with him achieving international literary renown after the publication of The Collector and The Magus, and leaving London behind to live in a remote house near Lyme Regis. This final volume charts the rewards and struggles of his continuing literary career, but at the same time reveals the often reluctant celebrity behind the outward success. Enjoying a reputation as one of the world's leading novelists, Fowles wins enormous wealth, kudos and attention, has the satisfaction of seeing The French Lieutenant's Woman turned into a highly acclaimed Hollywood film, but none the less comes to regard his fame with deep ambivalence. It cannot repair the growing strains between himself and his wife Elizabeth, who does not share his taste for rural isolation, nor can it cure the disenchantment he feels for an increasingly materialist society. This concluding volume of the Journals marks a writer's continuing quest for wisdom and self-understanding.

Books By Author John Fowles

Selected Poems by John Fowles Selected Poems, Paperback (July 2012)

John Fowles wrote poetry throughout his lifetime, but more during the 1950s and 1960s than later. This book presents a selection of his poetic work opening with two sequences dating from the early part of his career, two of which draw on his time living in Greece and his interest in Greek mythology.

Tree by John Fowles Tree, Paperback / softback (September 2010)

In this series of moving recollections involving both his childhood and his work as a mature artist, Fowles explains the impact of nature on his life and the dangers inherent in our traditional urge to categorize, to tame, and ultimately to possess the landscape.

Mantissa by John Fowles Mantissa, Paperback (November 2009)

Miles Green wakes up in a mysterious hospital with no idea of how he got there or who he is. He definitely doesn't remember his wife, or his children's names. An impossibly shapely specialist doctor tells him his memory nerve-center is connected to sexual activity, and calls in the even shapelier Nurse Cory to assist with treatment.

Book of Ebenezer le Page by John Fowles Book of Ebenezer le Page, Paperback (August 2007)

Eighty years old, Ebenezer Le Page has lived his whole life on the Channel Island of Guernsey, and as he reaches the end of his life he is determined to tell his own story and the stories of those he has known.
