Since then, this masterpiece has established itself as a modern classic. ?This brilliant work is a frightening parody on man?s return to that state of darkness from which it took him thousands of years to emerge. Fully to succeed, a fantasy must approach very close to reality. Lord of the Flies does. It must also be superbly written. It is? (The New York Times Book Review). A very handsome copy of this scarce title in fantastic condition with a superb autographed signed letter by Golding discussing his books! Presents extremely well on the shelf. ADDITIONAL IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Please see our ABE store for other important Rare Books and Original Illustration art. Signed by Author(s).
