An American classic and great bestseller for over thirty years, A Separate Peace is timeless in its description of adolescence during a period when the entire country was losing its innocence to World War II.
Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.
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.
