‘Of all the novels L.P. Hartley has written, I think The Go-Between is the best...It is in what is to be the best tradition of fiction’ — John Betjeman in the Daily Telegraph
In one of the first and finest of the post-war studies of early adolescence, an old man looks back on his boyhood and recalls a summer visit to a Norfolk country house at the beginning of the century.
Not yet equipped to understand the behaviour of adults, he is guiltily involved in a tragic drama between three grown-up people. The author forcefully conveys the intensity of an emotional experience that breeds a lasting mistrust of life.
