An American coming-of-age tale 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 Peaceis 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.
