A collection of articles from the 1950s and '60s written and selected by the author, which give us fresh perspectives on the familiar and carry us into unfamiliar territory. Like other works from Golding, these, too, are marked by his characteristic wit and wisdom. Golding won the 1983 Nobel Prize in Literature and he was posthumously named the third greatest British writer since 1945 (out of 50) by Time Magazine in 2008 ; [1-6] 7-175 [176-8] pages.
