The scorpion god; three short novels by William Golding( Book )
60 editions published between 1956 and 2013 in English and held by 1,673 libraries worldwide
"His marvellously funny - though characteristically unsparing - view is combined with his vivid realisation of the dust, colour and blazing sunlight of a world he had imagined since childhood. Clonk Clonk plunges us into an even more ancient way of life, primitive, delightful, matriarchal. It contains one of Golding's most appealing female characters, as well as a fascinating and surprising portrayal of masculinity. Envoy Extraordinary brings to life the court of a Roman emperor, nameless, benign yet accustomed to power. He is confronted by a brilliant but unsophisticated Greek whose fertile inventions, centuries before their time, include printing, the pressure cooker, and explosives. This story, later adapted by Golding as his play The Brass Butterfly , is fastidiously comic, philosophical and, as always with Golding, full of narrative irony. All three stories show Golding as a gentle satirist, bringing the past colourfully before us, with an awareness of human frailty but an amused affection towards the individuals who manifest it"--Publisher's description

To the ends of the earth : a sea trilogy by William Golding( Book )

To the Ends of the Earth, William Golding's classic sea trilogy, tells the extraordinary story of a warship's troubled journey to Australia in the early 1800s.

An instant maritime classic, and one of Golding's finest achievements, the trilogy was adapted into a major three-part BBC drama in 2005
