Famous Authors for $100, Alex

Molly McCloskey reviewed Judy Golding's memoir of her father, novelist William Golding.

The reality of her femaleness was awkward for her father: “He found incest both natural and absorbing – in theory.”

I must confess I am ignorant of the meaning of this. Like anyone else who did their schoolwork, I read Lord of the Flies many years ago, but I am unaware of any writings by Golding referring to either sexual abuse of children or consanguineous sex between adults, or anything of the sort in his own life. The review of Judy Goldng's memoir did not elaborate.

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at protonmail dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE. If your comment includes graphic descriptions of activity involving minors, it's not going to get published.
