9780099443438: Journals Vol II: v. 2

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.

Review:

"John Fowles's journals...make a fascinating document" ( Observer)

"I haven't enjoyed a new book so much in years" (Benjamin Markovits Daily Telegraph)

"Fowles regarded his journals... as his 'last novel'... It is hard to disagree with the claim... Remarkable" (Hal Jensen Times Literary Supplement)

"These miraculously faultless records are as impressive as The French Lieutenant's Woman" ( Literary Review)

"What an extraordinarily acute and gifted writer Fowles was... A haunting book" ( Daily Mail)

From the Publisher:

A major literary landmark: the second volume of one of the most extraordinary journals of our time.
