Description
A plane crash-lands on a desert island and the only survivors, a group of schoolboys, wait to be rescued; by day they inhabit a paradise of fantastic birds and beautiful blue seas, but at night their dreams are haunted by the presence of a terrifying beast—one they created themselves. This edition of William Golding's gripping 1954 parable of civilization and savagery, published for the centenary of his birth, is set with an introduction by Stephen King, who acknowledges how profoundly the novel affected him when he read it at the age of 12: "By the time the badly ill—and perhaps visionary—Simon confronts the severed and fly-blown head of the sow, which has been stuck on a pole, I was in terror. 'The half-shut eyes were dim with the infinite cynicism of adult life,' Golding writes. 'They assured Simon that everything was a bad business.' That line resonated with me then, and continues to resonate all these years later."
