William Nicholson

The Society Of Others
  • The Society Of Others

  • He has nowhere to go...so he goes there.

    An alienated young man can see no meaning in life. He doesn't even see the point of getting out of bed in the morning. To escape from his family he decides to set off on a hitchhiking adventure around Europe, and is picked up by a friendly lorry driver with an unusual interest in philosophy.

    The journey takes him through a violent and Kafkaesque nightmare to a destination that changes his life.

William Nicholson is best known as a writer of plays and screenplays, including SHADOWLANDS and GLADIATOR. He is also the bestselling and award-winning children's author of THE WIND ON FIRE trilogy. His first novel for adults was THE SOCIETY OF OTHERS. He lives in East Sussex with his wife, the writer Virginia Nicholson, and their three children.
