9780099530282: Mantissa (Vintage Classics)

Miles Green wakes up in a mysterious hospital with no idea of how he got there or who he is. He definitely doesn't remember his wife, or his children's names. An impossibly shapely specialist doctor tells him his memory nerve-centre is connected to sexual activity, and calls in the even shapelier Nurse Cory to assist with treatment... In the most unorthodox of hospital rooms we eavesdrop on the serious discourse, virulent abuse and hilarious mockery of the erotic guerilla war that is Mantissa.

"The only writer in English who has the power, range, knowledge, and wisdom of Tolstoy or James" (John Gardner)

"John Fowles is an artist of great imaginative power" (Sunday Times)
