From the Back Cover:

The Ebony Tower, comprising a novella, three stories, and a translation of a medieval French tale, echoes themes from John Fowles's internationally celebrated novels as it probes the fitful relations between love and hate, pleasure and pain, fantasy and reality.

John Fowles won international recognition with his first published novel, The Collector (1963). His subsequent works include The Magus (1966); The French Lieutenant's Woman (1969); Daniel Martin (1977); and others.
