Winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize

Darkness Visible opens at the height of the London Blitz, when a naked child steps out of an all-consuming fire. Miraculously saved but hideously scarred, soon tormented at school and at work, Matty becomes a wanderer, a seeker after some unknown redemption. Two more lost children await him, twins as exquisite as they are loveless. Toni dabbles in political violence; Sophy, in sexual tyranny. As Golding weaves their destinies together, his book reveals both the inner and outer darkness of our time.

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"
