The French Lieutenant's Woman by John Fowles


Gilded green leatherette bound book with decorative spine and sewn in silken bookmark.   

Book is very good, however there is a small spot of surface damage to lower back cover.  Otherwise, looks and reads beautifully.  *Nameplate on flyleaf page with names blotted out. 

In this contemporary, Victorian-style novel Charles Smithson, a nineteenth-century gentleman with glimmerings of twentieth-century perceptions, falls in love with enigmatic Sarah Woodruff, who has been jilted by a French lover.

Of all John Fowles' novels The French Lieutenant's Woman received the most universal acclaim and today holds a very special place in the canon of post-war English literature. From the god-like stance of the nineteenth-century novelist that he both assumes and gently mocks, to the last detail of dress, idiom and manners, his book is an immaculate recreation of Victorian England.
