This month, our theme is Coming of Age. It’s a hugely important topic; that step from childhood to adulthood is incredibly formative, it crops up in almost every novel, and ultimately, we’ve all experienced it. Here, for you, is an extract from the wonderful Life Moves Pretty Fast by Hadley Freeman. In it, Hadley explores two of the most important facets of one of the most well-known coming of age films. Enjoy!
