The Go-Between

I came across an old favorite the other day, L P Hartley’s THE GO-BETWEEN (1953.)

It’s the story of a young man who one summer visits the Edwardian country house of a school friend. In his innocence he becomes a go-between, carrying messages to a neighbor, a working man, from the daughter of the house.

In 1970 it was made into a fine movie with Julie Christie and Alan Bates.
