Publisher's Blurb
This is the story of Charlie, subnormal floor sweeper at Donner’s Bakery and the gentle butt of everyone’s jokes. This the story of Charlie, triumphant subject of a daring experiment on human intelligence. And this is the story of Charlie, forced to watch as the light of his miraculous salvation begins to flicker.

Beautifully conceived and intensely moving, Flowers for Algernon is one of science fiction’s most remarkable narrative achievements.

DANIEL KEYES was born in New York in 1927 and has worked as a merchant seaman, editor and university English lecturer. A classic treatment of the enhancement of human intelligence, and Keyes’ best known novel, Flowers for Algernon was made into the Oscar-winning film, Charly.
