    The simple yet seldom achieved foundations of a good biography are thoroughness and insight, and this book not only actualises those laurels but goes far above and beyond them Golding is presented as a whole a full, complex and conflicted human being, possessing intelligence, talent, morality, wit, quirks and darknesses with tact and tenderness, but also with unflinching yet non judgemental honesty The depths of Carey s research and respect are obvious and make the book the masterpiece it The simple yet seldom achieved foundations of a good biography are thoroughness and insight, and this book not only actualises those l...

    Golding is one of my favorite writers and an inspiration, which my ratings on this site may not indicate, as his oeuvre as a whole isbeautiful, imposing and haunting than most individual volumes from it show But I would and will reread anything and expect every book will grow with rereadings.I enjoyed Carey s biography and am grateful for its author s research but it s hard to feel satisfied it makes me wish there were complete publications of Golding s massive journal and the Golding Golding is one of my favorite writers and an inspiration, which my ratings on this site may not indicate, as his oeuvre as a whole isbeautiful, imposing and haunting than most individual volumes from it show But I would and will reread anything and expect every book will grow with rereadings.I enjoyed Carey s b...
