Compiled hy DENYS GUEROULT
' The theme tonight is self-discovery. In Pamela Hansford Johnson's Proust reconstruction, Saint-Loup finds his true nature and William Golding 's The Ladder and the Tree reveals the moment at which childhood begins to die.
The terrible self-discovery of Oedipus is followed by a moment of light relief when Compton Mackenzie visits Henry James - yet even here James's own self-knowledge is disclosed to the younger author. In Final Meeting guilt and terror literally mirror the whole of a man's life and in 'Der Doppelgänger' the apparition of an earlier alter ego completes an evening of the past preserved for the contemplation of the present.'

The author of Lord of the Flies and Free Fall recalls his childhood, a childhood of many terrors, with a cemetery over the wall, ancient cellars, Latin to be learned - recalls his ebullient father, and the chestnut tree which became the boy's inviolable retreat.
