Episode 130: John Knowles, A Separate Peace

One of us read this famous WWII coming-of-age novel in high school, while the other is encountering it for the first time. Will it hold up to adult scrutiny? Should today’s high school students still be forced to read it? And are the two main characters totally gay for each other?
