William Golding

The Man Who Wrote Lord of the Flies

John Carey

The Nobel Prize-winning author of a dozen novels, William Golding is still remembered chiefly for his first dark vision of humanity, Lord of the Flies. Drawing on unpublished papers including the novelist’s private journal, this biography uncovers the sources of that darkness in the writer himself; a war hero who considered himself a 'monster', who battled depression and alcoholism, but put his faith above all in the imagination.
