Description - A Separate Peace by John Knowles
An American coming-of-age tale during a period when the entire country was losing its innocence to the second world war
Set at a boys' boarding school in New England during the early years of World War II, A Separate Peace is a harrowing and luminous parable of the dark side of adolescence. Gene is a lonely, introverted intellectual. Phineas is a handsome, taunting, daredevil athlete.
What happens between the two friends one summer, like the war itself, banishes the innocence of these boys and their world.
