Summary: William Golding has written a story of our times, a chilling mystery which never ceases to mystify. 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. The master of disturbing suggestion, Golding stirs up the sediment of dark thoughts and half-ideas within us all; but for the reader as well as the characters, the reality of inarticulate fear emerges more clearly than ever. 265 pages.
