According to Wikipedia, The Magus " tells the story of Nicholas Urfe, a young British graduate who is teaching English on a small Greek island. Urfe becomes embroiled in the psychological illusions of a master trickster, which become increasingly dark and serious." The Magus is critically acclaimed and appears on several "best novels" lists - both ones chosen by critics and by readers.
It was adapted for a film starring Michael Caine and Anthony Quinn in 1968, which performed terribly and was disliked by critics.
