Description: A title, that opens at the height of the London Blitz, when a naked child steps out of an all-consuming fire.

Two more lost children await him, twins as exquisite as they are loveless.
Synopsis: Winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. 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. Two more lost children await him, twins as exquisite as they are loveless. Toni dabbles in political violence; Sophy, in sexual tyranny. As Golding weaves their destinies together, his book reveals both the inner and outer darkness of our time.
