A reissue of the tour de force by the Nobel laureate that is "a vision of elemental reality so vivid we seem to hallucinate the scenes" (The New York Times Book Review). It opens during the London blitz, when a naked child steps out of an all-consuming fire; that child, Matty, becomes a wanderer and a seeker. Two more lost children await him, twins as exquisite as they are loveless. In a final conflagration, William Golding's book lights up both the inner and outer darknesses of our time.

About the Author:

William Golding (1911–93) was born in Cornwall, England. His first novel, Lord of the Flies, was published in 1954 and became an international bestseller. In 1983, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Review:

A vision of elemental reality so vivid we seem to hallucinate the scenes . . . [Golding] emerges like Merlin the wizard to cast a new spell . . . Darkness Visible is magic. -The New York Times Book Review

A brilliantly spooky novel . . . Written with great insight and a surprising humor, it is a thorough pleasure to read. -The Atlantic Monthly

Darkness Visible, it must be said at once, restores a living force among us . . . An intensity of vision without parallel. -Frank Tuohy, The Times Literary Supplement
