Staff Reviews

This classic tops the list of “Best Coming of Age” fiction. Read the book first and then watch the movie – starring Hume Cronyn. Spellbinding!

— Margaret, Pittsburgh


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.

A bestseller for more than thirty years, "A Separate Peace" is John Knowles's crowning achievement and an undisputed American classic.
