    For our next episode (out Monday, June 18th) we will discuss the high school novel, A Separate Peace by John Knowles.

    This book about two friends at an all boys school during World War II is a classic. It’s often assigned in high schools across the country. And while Julia and Tod both read it in their teens, Rider somehow missed it…

    So grab a copy, or dust off your old one (or find the Cliff Notes you read back in the day, you cheater), and get ready to head back to The Devon School.

    Very interesting discussion. Just wanted to add two more novels involving boarding school experiences from European writers which you didn’t mention:
    A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce (brilliant book).
    The Confusions of Young Torless by Robert Musil (really impressive, but also very heavy, psychologically interesting stuff).
