Editorial Reviews

Review

Aubrey Menen 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.

National Review A masterpiece.

The Observer A model of restraint, deeply felt and beautifully written.

Warren Miller Mr. Knowles has something to say about youth and war that few contemporary novelists have attempted to say and none has said better.

About the Author

John Knowles (1926–2001) was a graduate of Phillips Exeter Academy and Yale University, as well as a recipient of the William Faulkner Award and the Rosenthal Award of the National Institute of Arts and Letters. His books include Separate Peace, Peace Breaks Out, and The Paragon.

By KD on August 6, 2019
There are 13 pages where the print went from regular horizontal text to vertical stacked letters! Cheap garbage!
