Author Info
John Knowles
John Knowles was the author of nine other novels after A SEPARATE PEACE, his 1959 study of adolescent turmoil, but none of his works ever matched that book's popularity and eminence. Knowles was educated at Exeter and Yale, then worked as a reporter, an editor, and, finally, a teacher of creative writing. He was 75 when he died.
"A quietly vital and cleanly written novel that moves, page by page, toward a most interesting target."
"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. As I read the story I had the feeling of climbing a tower and looking at wider and wider prospects of human nature, each bleaker than the last....The characters are real, the tragedy is inevitable, the setting is perfectly chosen. I shall recommend this book to anyone who tells me that the novel is no longer a work of art."
From the Publisher
Annotation At a New England boarding school during World War II, a group of boys discover the depths of human nature among themselves, and the evil that even the most innocent is capable of.
First Line I went back to the Devon School not long ago, and found it looking oddly newer than when I was a student there fifteen years before.
