“Brilliant...sardonic, ludicrously funny.” – New York Times
The classic story of an aimless college graduate in 1960s America that inspired the classic film.
When Benjamin Braddock graduates from a small eastern college and comes home to his parents’ house, everyone wants to know what he’s going to do with his life. Benjamin has no idea. Feeling empty, embittered, and adrift, he stumbles into an affair with Mrs. Robinson, the wife of his father’s business partner. But then he falls in love with a woman closer to his own age: Mrs. Robinson’s daughter.
A scathingly entertaining tale of idealism and materialism, corruption and conformity, The Graduate is both a darkly comic love-triangle tale and a sharp look at postwar suburbia.
