Wormholes Summary


Wormholes: Essays and Occasional Writings by John Fowles

Here, for the first time, is a riveting collection of Fowles's fugitive and intensely personal writings composed sinced 1963, ranging from essays and literary criticism to commentaries, autobiographical statements, memoirs and musings. Wormholes is a delicious sampling of the various matters that have plagued, preoccupied, or delighted Fowles throughout his life; it is a rich mine of essays as art and a `geography' of the mind of one of the twentieth century's greatest novelists.

Wormholes Reviews


"Fowles's mind is as lively, tangy and quirkily textured as Stilton" * Observer *
"A splendidly uplifting book" -- Richard Mabey
"Anyone familiar with books such as The French Lieutenant's Woman and The Magus will already know that Fowles is a perceptive and intelligent writer, but this collection shows him to be as fascinating and entertaining in his non-fiction as he is in his novels. Indeed, Wormholes is something of an embarassment of riches, there are so many marvellous things in here" * Hampstead & Highgate Express *
"John Fowles is a magnificent novelist who has written two masterpieces but who has a reluctance to give precise endings to his stories... In the wise and beautifully written essays and biographical pieces of Wormholes he indicates why this is so" * Daily Telegraph *
