As part of Back Bay's ongoing effort to make the works of John
Fowles available in uniform trade paperback editions, two major
works in the Fowles canon are reissued to coincide with the
publication of Wormholes, the author's long-awaited new collection
of essays and occasional writings.
Perhaps the most beloved of Fowles's internationally bestselling
works, The French Lieutenant's Woman is a feat of seductive
storytelling that effectively invents anew the Victorian novel.
"Filled with enchanting mysteries and magically erotic
possibilities" (New York Times), the novel inspired the hugely
successful 1981 film starring Meryl Streep and Jeremy Irons and is
today universally regarded as a modern classic.
In A Maggot, originally published in 1985, Fowles reaches back to
the eighteenth century to offer readers a glimpse into the future.
Time magazine called the result "hypnotic....A remarkable
achievement. Part detective story, part crackling courtroom
drama....An immensely rich and readable novel."
