The Wasp Factory is the first novel published by Scottish author Iain Banks (b. 1954 – d. 2013). Banks had previously written several science-fiction manuscripts, none of which were published. Banks’ failure to publish science-fiction encouraged him to attempt writing a more mainstream novel. The Wasp Factory, written from the perspective of 17-year-old psychopath Frank, describes the life of a psychopathic teen living with his father on a small Scottish island. After its initial success Banks would go on to write such science fiction masterpieces as The Culture.
