He's Hesse. If you've never read him, you probably weren't in Literature classes in college. I like this book. I'm not actually a huge Hesse fan, but this book and I get along. I think the trouble with Hesse is he wrote at the age of 40 after an incredible life. You probably won't get a lot of what is there till you're also around 40. So you have to read him over and over and see what else is there. When you're in high school though, frankly I think you'll find him dull and almost like a poor man's intellectual. The important part of Hesse is not what you'll see first.
