17th September 1954 - William Golding publishes 'Lord of the Flies'

William Golding On this day in 1954 William Golding published Lord of the Flies. Had written it while teaching at Bishop Wordsworth’s School, Salisbury.

I think I remember an ex-teacher at the school saying that he worked on the book at lunchtimes, sitting in the staff-room.
