“A superb novel…Evil has seldom been so sinister.” —Time

Hailed as the first modern psychological thriller, The Collector is the internationally bestselling novel that catapulted John Fowles into the front rank of contemporary novelists. This tale of obsessive love–the story of a lonely clerk who collects butterflies and of the beautiful young art student who is his ultimate quarry–remains unparalleled in its power to startle and mesmerize.

“A bravura first novel…As a horror story, this book is a remarkable tour de force.” —New Yorker
