Publisher Comments:

The classic novel by William Golding

With a new Introduction by Stephen King

"To me Lord of the Flies has always represented what novels are for, what makes them indispensable." -Stephen King

Golding's classic, startling, and perennially bestselling portrait of human nature remains as provocative today as when it was first published. This beautiful new edition features French flaps and rough fronts, making it a must-have for fans of this seminal work.

Synopsis:

The classic tale of a group of English school boys who are left stranded on an unpopulated island, and who must confront not only the defects of their society but the defects of thier own natures.

About the Author

Born in Cornwall, England, in 1911 and educated at Oxford University, William Gerald Golding's first book, Poems, was published in 1935. Following a stint in the Royal Navy and other diversions during and after World War II, Golding wrote Lord of the Flies while teaching school. This was the first of several novels including Pincher Martin, Free Fall, and The Inheritors and a play, The Brass Butterfly, which led to his being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1983.

When I read this in my high school English class, my best friend and I were convinced "Lord of the Flies" was a religious metaphor, and everyone else thought we were crazy, until the teacher sided with us. I cannot emphasize how helpful it can be to read Messiah stories to question your own faith; this can be a chance to test your own beliefs, or if you aren't Christian, a great look at how Christianity uses themes that translate to great storytelling. The Bible is the most popular book of all time, you know!
