I bought this 2nd hand book today at the Five Dock Street Fair. The back cover reads:

Exploding with life and colour, the tantalizing wizardry of ''The Magus'' has, since its first publication in 1966, intrigued and entranced reviews and readers alike, outstripping in popularity even John Fowles'' other bestsellers: The collector, THe French Lieutenant''s Woman, and The Ebony Tower.

The Magus is rich, theatrical entertainment of the highest order, set in the shimmering light of Greece and packed with a constant parade of events, real and surreal, as good and evil compete in changing and infinitely surprising forms.

The substantially revised version offers additional treasures of rewritten and completely new scenes, as well as a strong erotic element. The seduction is total, at least as much for those who have already made that unforgettable journey to Phraxos as for readers with the delights of that magnificent experience still awaiting them.

The awful realisation when you come to understand you can't possibly read all the books in this one lifetime... and you have two copies of the same book on your bookshelf!

Yes, while browsing this morning I saw there were two copies of this book - not that I have finished either.

Releasing in the hope another person can read (enjoy may be the wrong word) this book.
