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 twenty years, it is one of the  most starkly moving parables ever written of the  dark forces that brood over the tortured world of  adolescence.

Praise For A Separate Peace

"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.
