Amazon.com description: Product Description:

In the suburbs of Chicago in the 1920s, two boys initiate an unusual friendship: Lymie Peters, a skinny and somewhat clumsy boy who always gets good grades, and newcomer Spud Latham, a star athlete and mediocre student. Spud accepts Lymie’s devotion without questioning it, but once high school ends and the boys enter college, tensions begin to arise between them. Lymie is the first to meet Sally Forbes, but she will fall in love with Spud, and this will mark the beginning of the rift between them. But this rupture will be more than Lymie can bear. William Maxwell provides the reader with a moving portrayal of adolescence and the shift from youth into adulthood.

 

En los suburbios de Chicago en los años veinte, dos chicos inician una insólita amistad: Lymie Peters, un muchacho delgado y un poco torpe que siempre saca buenas notas, y el recién llegado Spud Latham, un auténtico atleta y estudiante mediocre. Spud acepta la devoción de Lymie sin cuestionarla, pero al terminar la escuela secundaria y comenzar la universidad, aparecen las primeras tensiones entre ellos. Lymie es el primero en conocer a Sally Forbes, pero ella se enamorará de Spud, y este hecho marcará el inicio del distanciamiento entre los dos amigos. Pero la ruptura es más de lo que Lymie podrá soportar. He aquí un conmovedor retrato de la adolescencia y el paso de la juventud a la edad adulta.
