Marking the centenary of the birth of the Nobel-winning novelist William Golding, Judy Golding gives a very personal reflection on the rich and strange ways her father's imagination worked.
From her unique perspective, she talks about how William Golding used childhood memories and everyday observations - making them unsettling details in his novels - and blurred the boundary between memory and imagination.
She says "He was extremely - perhaps excessively - imaginative."
Judy Golding recently published a memoir about her upbringing, called The Children of Lovers.
This week, The Essay marks the centenary of William Golding's birth (19th September 1911), with five programmes looking at different aspects of the novelist's work and life.
William Golding is known for novels including Lord of the Flies, The Inheritors and The Spire. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1983, the Booker Prize for Rites of Passage in 1980 and was knighted in 1988. He died in 1993.
