" William Golding (1911-1993) was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1983 [knighted 1988, Booker prize winner 1980]. The Nobel Foundation cited: "his novels which, with the perspicuity of realistic narrative art and the diversity and universality of myth, illuminate the human condition in the world of today". Those novels are relatively few in number-twelve. Golding also wrote plays, many essays and reviews, several short stories, some poems, and a travel book about Egypt. Quite apart from his obvious achievements as a writer, it is worth pointing out the vast range and diversity of the subject matter of his novels, and the challenge he set himself. Perhaps his greatest achievement is to have lived through the most terrible and inhumane of centuries, and to have left behind a body of work that can be said to reflect much of the horror of that time as well as an understanding of it."-Golding website. " William Golding has divided this collection of short, or shortish, non-fiction pieces-his first since the publication of "The Hot Gates' in 1965-into two sections. The first, 'Places', ranges from Wiltshire and Winchester and Salisbury cathedrals, through Holland, Greece and Egypt, to Planet Earth itself; and the second, "Ideas', contains philosophical and critical reflections which include fascinating and illuminating discussions of the personal background to some of his own novels."-dust jack front flap.
