Gene was a lonely, introverted intellectual.  Phineas was a handsome, taunting, daredevil athlete.  What happened between them at school one summer  during the early years of World War II is the  subject of A Separate Peace. A  great bestseller for over thirty years--one of the  most starkly moving parables ever written of the  dark forces that brood over the tortured world of  adolescence.


From the Paperback edition.

"I think it is the  best-written, best-designed and most moving novel I  have read in many years. Beginning with a tiny  incident among ordinary boys, it ends by being as  deep and as big as evil itself." -- Aubrey  Menen

"A quietly vital and cleanly  written novel that moves, page by page, towards a  most interesting target." -- Truman  Capote

"Is he the successor to Salinger for  whom we have been waiting so long? --  Encounter.

"A masterpiece."  -- National Review.
