William Golding: Beyond Lord of the Flies – Cheltenham Literature Festival
100 in stock
An innovator, a visionary, a radical, William Golding wrote 12 novels covering a vast range of subjects (in addition to many plays, essays, short stories and poems), was awarded The Nobel Prize for Literature, The Booker Prize and ranked third by The Times on their list of ‘The 50 greatest British writers since 1945’. However, it may still be Lord of the Flies that most readers know him for.
As Faber prepare to reissue his entire oeuvre with new introductions by some of our leading writers, we bring together his daughter Judy Golding (The Children of Lovers: A Memoir of William Golding), novelist Kate Mosse (author of the new introduction to Golding’s Fire Down Below publishing in 2022) and academic and editor of Golding’s letters Tim Kendall to discuss a remarkable body of work. Chaired by Daniel Hahn.
