Lord of the Flies. 6 CDs

Complete and unabridged

A plane crashes on a desert island and the only survivors, a group of schoolboys, assemble on the beach and wait to be rescued. By day they inhabit a land of bright fantastic birds and dark blue seas, but at night their dreams are haunted by the image of a terrifying beast.
Portrait
William Golding was born in Cornwall in 1911 and was educated at Marlborough Grammar School and at Brasenose College, Oxford. Before he became a schoolmaster he was an actor, a lecturer, a small-boat sailor and a musician. A now rare volume, Poems, appeared in 1934. In 1940 he joined the Royal Navy and saw action against battleships, submarines and aircraft. He was present at the sinking of the Bismarck. He finished the war as a Lieutenant in command of a rocket ship, which was off the French coast for the D-day invasion, and later at the island of Welcheren. After the war he returned to Bishop Wordsworth's School in Salisbury and was there when his first novel, Lord of the Flies, was published in 1954. He gave up teaching in 1961. Lord of the Flies was filmed by Peter Brook in 1963. Golding listed his hobbies as music, chess, sailing, archaeology and classical Greek (which he taught himself). Many of these subjects appear in his essay collections The Hot Gates and A Moving Target. He won the Booker Prize for his novel Rites of Passage in 1980, and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1983. He was knighted in 1988. He died at his home in the summer of 1993. The Double Tongue, a novel left in draft at his death, was published in June 1995. Martin Jarvis, often referred to as the 'wizard of the talking book', is the star of BBC 2's new comedy series, Taking the Flak. His international career encompasses Stargate Atlantis, Numb3rs andMurder She Wrote in America and David Copperfield, Morse, Much Ado and The Bill in Britain. He has starred in many West End and Royal National productions and on Broadway in By Jeeves, winning the Theatre World Award. Films include the multi-Oscar-winning Titanic. His Just William audio recordings are world wide best sellers. He is invested as an OBE for his services to the arts.
