A Separate Peace

By  John Knowles

This was one of the Book Daily book samples posted today. One of the first books I read in high school, it’s pretty hard to forget. Clearly today I can still see the image of two boys out on a limb and recall my imagining what he meant by, “two pistons.”

If you’ve read this book, you know what I mean. If not, you might want to have a look. It’s not “The Catcher in the Rye”, but it is compelling.

Somewhat apropos, as I’m alone again this evening.
