Synopsis

The Children of Lovers A Memoir of William Golding by His Daughter by Judy Golding

'The Children of Lovers are Orphans'. Proverb. Bestselling novelist, author of Lord of the Flies , William Golding was a famously acute observer of children. What was it like to be his daughter? In this frank and engaging family memoir, Judy Golding recalls growing up with a brilliant, loving, sometimes difficult parent. The years of her childhood and adolescence saw her father change from an impecunious schoolteacher to a famous novelist. Once adult, she came to understand some of the internal conflicts which led to his writing. The Golding family life, both ordinary and extraordinary, always kept its characteristic warmth, humour, complexity, anger and love, danger and insecurity.
