"The Ebony Tower" is a series of novellas, rich in imagery, exploring the nature of art.

The story of the title - which the "Observer" described as 'the finest thing Fowles has written' - concerns a journalist visiting a celebrated but reclusive painter.

He is intrigued by the complicated erotic relationship between the elderly painter and the beautiful young women who share their lives with him.
