RIP John Knowles

RIP John Knowles. Call me predictable and simple minded, but A Separate Peace remains one of my favorite novels. And unlike most critics, I enjoyed Knowles’ other works, especially The Paragon and Indian Summer.

Embarassing confession: In high school, I tried to write a one-act musical based on “Phineas,” the original short-story that predated A Separate Peace.
