John Fowles wrote five compelling stories later made into motion
pictures. This book examines for the first time the film and video
adaptations of these stories, as well as Fowles's role in adapting
his literary genius to visual media. Besides his authorship of the
screenplay for The Magus (1968), Fowles was an uncredited
contributor to The Collector (1965) and The French Lieutenant's
Woman (1971), and to the British television adaptations The Ebony
Tower and The Enigma. His unpublished short story The Last Chapter
was adapted as a theatrical short film satirizing the James Bond
novels. Few are aware that the 1997 thriller The Game was a
brilliant adaptation of The Magus, or that Fowles himself acted out
scenes from that novel for a Greek television documentary. This
book gives deserved recognition to John Fowles as a contributor to
cinema, a medium he both loved and distrusted, where his stories
acquired vivid alternative lives.
