Printing Details

First edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 13.5cm, 178pp.

Three short novels show Golding at his subtle, ironic, mysterious best. The Scorpion God depicts a challenge to primal authority as the god-ruler of an ancient civilization lingers near death. Clonk Clonk is a graphic account of a crippled youth's triumph over his tormentors in a primitive matriarchal society. Envoy Extraordinary is a tale of Imperial Rome where the emperor loves his illegitimate son more than his own arrogant, loutish heir.

Condition

A good reading copy. The pages are foxed to the edges and the wrapper has been price-clipped.
