Three novels from a multiple Academy Award winner and the New York Times–bestselling author of The Princess Bride.
In Boys and Girls Together, author William Goldman offers a beautiful tale of early adulthood inspired by his own experiences. Five friends—all young, creative, ambitious, and troubled—make their way to New York City to pursue their dreams. Together they struggle, fight, love, make art, and face the hard truths of life.
In Marathon Man—the New York Times–bestselling thriller Goldman adapted into the classic film starring Dustin Hoffman and Sir Laurence Olivier—Columbia University student and aspiring marathon runner Thomas “Babe” Levy is trying to clear his late father’s name after accusations of Communist affiliation. But soon Thomas finds himself embroiled in a Nazi conspiracy—and running for his life.
In Goldman’s debut novel, The Temple of Gold, Raymond Euripides Trevitt comes of age in midwestern, mid-twentieth-century America. He is virtually alone in Athens, Illinois, until a boy named Zock moves in next door. Through adolescence, double dating, and first loves, they grow up side-by-side. But as their paths diverge, a tragic accident leaves Ray alone once again, and he must learn to find hope in the depths of despair.
