Daniel Martin Reviews

A work of imaginative energy and passionate honesty * The Times *
An instant masterpiece. It is a tour de force of stamina and subtlety * Daily Telegraph *
A descriptive writer of great power * Independent *
I find it disastrous to read any of John Fowles' books - once I pick one up, I cannot put it down so everything else gets ignored! * Daily Express *
It is filled with beguiling dramatic set-pieces - scenes from the protagonist's Devon childhood, a romantic idyll with a neighboring farm girl, a gently satirical send-up of Hollywood hedonism, some marvelous travel-writing about Egypt and Syria... An old-fashioned novel in the sense that one can enter and live in it * New York Times *
