“The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.” Please join us to consider this statement from The Go-Between, published in 1953, a haunting story of a young boy’s awakening into the secrets of the adult world. Spending a long, hot Edwardian summer visiting a school friend, young Leo begins to act as messenger between the beautiful daughter of the house and a local farmer. He is drawn deeper and deeper into a dangerous game of desire and deceit which he only truly understands in retrospect. The novel captures the mood of summers past and invites us to consider the role of the go-between in literature and in life!
