Faber relaunches Golding’s novels

Faber & Faber are to relaunch all Golding’s novels with brand new covers and introductions from a range of exciting writers! Pincher Martin, The Spire, and The Inheritors will be published in October, with introductions from Ben Okri, Marlon James and Benjamin Myers. The other books will be released in stages from January 2022. There will be a special event at the Cheltenham Literature Festival on 13th October to celebrate the reissues.

William Golding Limited said:

‘We are delighted that Faber is relaunching the work of William Golding. We are particularly pleased that the emphasis is on novels he wrote after Lord of the Flies, many of which are still more radical and innovatory than their celebrated predecessor. Golding’s portrayal of human frailty as well as his prescient awareness of environmental destruction are all too relevant today.’
