A Maggot

John Fowles


In his prologue, John Fowles tells us that "A Maggot" started as a imaginative and prescient he had of 5 visitors driving with mysterious goal via distant geographical region. This picture supplies solution to one other - a dangling corpse with violets crammed in its mouth - which leads us right into a maze of beguiling paths and unsuitable turnings, disappearances and revelations, unaccountable causes and cryptic deeds, as this compelling secret swerves in the direction of a starling imaginative and prescient at its centre.
