Episode 129: Lord of the Flies


You read it in high school.

You remember the conch, Piggy, and a boar head on a stick…

But do you remember the Beast? That a child disappears the first day on the island? How about the fact that this novel is set during an atomic war?

And did you know this book was written in direct response to a 19th Century children’s book that had the same character names?

It’s time for us all to re-read William Golding’s classic, Lord of the Flies. Join us.
