en Limba Engleză Hardback – October 1996 – vârsta de la 14 până la 18 ani
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 the second world war.
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."

Notă biografică

Aubrey Menen
"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.

"National Review" A masterpiece.

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.
