Fowles' magnum opus further bolsters his reputation for innovative, passionately imagined storytelling
Set internationally and spanning three decades, Daniel Martin is, in the author's own words, 'intended as a defence and illustration of an unfashionable philosophy, humanism, and also as an exploration of what it is to be English'. It is the richly evoked narrative of a contemporary Englishman's attempt to see himself and his time in the mirrors of his past and present.
“A work of imaginative energy and passionate honesty”
“An instant masterpiece-It is a tour de force of stamina and subtlety”
“A descriptive writer of great power”
“I find it disastrous to read any of John Fowles' books - once I pick one up, I cannot put it down so everything else gets ignored!”
Judi Dench, Daily Express
