Author Biography

William Golding was born in Cornwall in 1911 and educated at Oxford. Before he became a schoolmaster he was an actor, lecturer, small-boat sailor and musician. In 1940 he joined the Royal Navy and was present at the sinking of the Bismarck, becoming a Lieutenant in command of a rocket ship. After the war he taught in Salisbury. His celebrated debut novel, Lord of the Flies, was published in 1954 (later filmed by Peter Brook). He won the Booker Prize for Rites of Passage in 1980, and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1983, before being knighted in 1988. He died in 1993.
