Okay, as much as I’d like to make this episode all about the book, Lord of the Flies, with some interesting filler about the author, William Golding, I unfortunately happened upon some Golding manure. In the episode, I said I’d link to the article detailing said manure, so here you go.
Also, here’s the Amazon US link to that memoir I was telling you about. For you wonderful people not in the US, the title of the book is William Golding: The Man Who Wrote Lord of the Flies by John Carey. Happy reading!
Also, the edition of Lord of the Flies that I got to replace my old, sentimental copy…the one with all the cool extras? It’s the Casebook Edition of Lord of the Flies. It’s put out by Penguin and was edited by James R. Baker and Arthur P. Ziegler, Jr. So many extras!
