Description
Information
L. P. Hartley's powerful novel opens with Leo, a man in his sixties, looking back to his childhood and his first glimpse of the passion and intrigue behind the enigmatic mask of adulthood. In the summer of 1900, as a young boy, the narrator is staying at a friend's house in Norfolk, a time which is to change his life irrevocably. Befriended by a farmer, Leo inadvertently begins to act as a messenger between him and the beautiful Marian up at the house. Proud of the trust placed in him by two people he adores, Leo is drawn in deeper and deeper. A pawn in their dangerous game of deceit and desire, his involvement leads to a premature, devastating awakening. A classic story of lost innocence, blighted hopes and the pangs of youth, The Go-Between was beautifully filmed by Joseph Losey in his 1970 adaptation starring Julie Christie and Alan Bates.
