William Golding - Rapist?

According to The Guardian UK, based on a recently-released private memoir by the author, is reporting that, in his teenage years, William Golding attempted to rape a young woman. A biography, ostensibly charting this and other indiscretions of the author, will be released later, and, as the article notes: "Golding's papers also described how he had experimented, while a teacher at a public school, with setting boys against one another in the manner of Lord of the Flies, which tells the story of young air crash survivors on a desert island during a nuclear war."
