A Separate Peace by John Knowles
A Separate Peace

pea, January 19, 2012

I beautifully written and accurate portrayal of childhood, adulthood and what it means to know the world. I would recommend this book as a gift to readers of any age, as its language is simple and lovely, while its themes are timeless.
