In May 2005 Penguin will publish 70 unique titles to celebrate the company's 70th birthday. The titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth of quality of the Penguin list and will hark back to Penguin founder Allen Lane's vision of good books for all'. William Boyd has been writing well-loved, prize-winning fiction since Penguin published A Good Man in Africa in 1981. His fiction is often a revealing excavation of an individual life and in Protobiography, Boyd turns to his own biography for inspiration, exploring his childhood in West Africa and his schooling in Scotland.
