Christopher Martin, the sole survivor of a torpedoed destroyer, is stranded upon a rock in the middle of the Atlantic.

Pitted against him are the sea, the sun, the night cold and the terror of his isolation.

To drink there is a pool of rain water; to eat there are weeds and sea anemones.

Through the long hours with only himself to talk to, Martin must try to assemble the truth of his fate, piece by terrible piece.

While most readers are aware of William Golding as the writer of Lord of the Flies, it is Pincher Martin, his third novel, that speaks most directly to contemporary readers.

This shocking, unusual bullet of a book is the definitive survival novel and has an ending that is guaranteed to leave you reeling.
