Indeed, if it weren't written by William Golding , it would be easy to mistake the first 50 or so pages of Rites of Passage for a straightforward social comedy. The early narrative takes the form of a journal that the young dandy Edmund Talbot keeps on the way to Australia — ostensibly to amuse and inform his godfather back in England.
