About the Author


Born in Cornwall, England, in 1911 and educated at Oxford University, William Gerald Golding's first book, Poems, was published in 1935. Following a stint in the Royal Navy and other diversions during and after World War II, Golding wrote Lord of the Flies while teaching school. This was the first of several novels including Pincher Martin, Free Fall, and The Inheritors and a play, The Brass Butterfly, which led to his being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1983.

Bourbon Books

Poor Richard's Books hosted authors Susan Reigler and Michael Veach during Bourbonanza October 15.

Bourbon authority, Veach, explains in Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage, how bourbon went from "low-brow to top shelf."

Reigler, Executive Bourbon Steward and President of The Bourbon Women Association, has created Kentucky Bourbon Country: The Essential Travel Guide.  She has also authored several "Bourbon Cocktail" recipe books.

We will have those books and others written by Susan and Michael (including a few signed copies!), as well as a rich selection of books on bourbon tasting, bourbon history and cooking with bourbon. See our selection of bourbon-related books under "From our Store" on the left side of this page.
