About the Author

William Nicholson is a highly sought-after Hollywood screenwriter whose work on Gladiator helped garnered the film an Oscar. He is also the bestselling and award-winning children's author of The Wind Singer trilogy. He lives in East Sussex with his wife and their three children.


"Hovers between the wisecracking observational realism of Salinger and the parable dream space of Kafka. . . . A paean to humanism and perhaps faith." -Salon

"One part spy novel, one part mystical fable. . . . Forges a provocative amalgam of the
humane and the homicidal." -San Diego Tribune "Both a joy to read and intellectually challenging." -The Baltimore Sun "A smart, engrossing allegorical tale a dystopic fable for the twenty-first
century." -Montreal Gazette "This is a novel I would dearly love to have written yet one whose message is an antidote for envy. It is exciting, funny, wise, and beautifully written."
--Piers Paul Read, author of Alive "This extraordinary book, a sort of wild combination of Kafka and The Catcher in the Rye, whirls with its catatonically dysfunctional hero into a maelstrom of violence and danger to learn from oppressed strangers what really matters in a human life, and to face the most terrifying of interrogators, the self. The reader will not escape unchanged."
--Jill Paton Walsh "It's a challenge as well as a pleasure, but The Society of Others is a novel that demands attention. William Nicholson is someone we are going to hear a good deal more about."
--Peter Stanford, author of Heaven: A Guide to the Undiscovered Country "It is thrilling in every sense, but it is also hypnotic, fast-moving, and intellectually challenging, as it twists and turns, leaving you confused, uncertain, even uncomfortable, and yet utterly hooked. A philosophical master class, it is quite staggeringly good."
--Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail
