Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A summer visit to a friend's English estate lands a young man in hot water when he falls for his host's older sister and becomes embroiled in a dangerous game. Reprint.


Review:

"[Hartley's] writing is so mournful and sweet because he is willing to consider seriously terrors that only children ought to have....As a writer, his best moments are in describing terror at age 13 and the realization at 60-odd that one need not have been so terrified after all. In THE GO-BETWEEN, artfully, the intervening years are compressed into the act of recollection, and the novel's structure fits the novelist's talents like a glove."

Caleb Crain, Nation, 04/29/2002

Review:

"Methodically and inexorably Hartley's plot threads are all twisted together, pulled tight, tighter, and tighter still--until the tension makes everything snap."

Michael Dirda, Atlantic Monthly, June 2002
