Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Eight Neanderthals encounter another race of beings like themselves, yet strangely different. This new race, Homo sapiens, fascinating in their skills and sophistication, terrifying in their cruelty, sense of guilt, and incipient corruption, spell doom for the more gentle folk whose world they will inherit. Golding, author of Lord of the Flies, won the 1983 Nobel Prize for Literature.

About the Author

William Golding (1911-1993) was born in Cornwall, England, and educated at Oxford University. His first book, Poems, was published in 1935. He served in the Royal Navy, and while teaching school after the war, he wrote Lord of the Flies, his first novel. A prominent novelist, essayist, and poet, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1983.
