9780141189116: The Outsiders (Penguin Modern Classics)

Adapted into an award-winning film by Francis Ford Coppola, and starring Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe and Tom Cruise, S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders is a young adult novel of enduring power. This Penguin Modern Classics edition is published with an introduction by Jodi Picoult, author of My Sister's Keeper.

The Greasers and the rich-kid Socs are at war on the Tulsa streets. Ponyboy, a fourteen-year-old brawler, chainsmoker and dreamer, is a fiercely loyal greaser. But a single, murderous catastrophe is to wrench him from his old life and overturn everything he thinks he knows. The Outsiders was an audacious debut written when S.E. Hinton was only seventeen, laying bare the hopes and terrors between teenage bravado in a world of drive-ins, drag races and switchblades. It confronted America with a new breed of anti-hero from the wrong side of the class divide, and became a bestselling classic of youthful rebellion.

Susan Eloise Hinton (b. 1950) wrote her first book, The Outsiders, in 1967, when she was seventeen years old. Hinton is also the author of That Was When, This Is Now (1971), adapted into a film starring Emilio Estevez and Morgan Freeman; Rumble Fish (1975), also adapted into a film by Francis Ford Coppola, starring Mickey Rourke, Nicholas Cage and Dennis Hopper; Tex (1979); Taming the Star Runner (1988), and many others. Hinton lives in Oklahoma.

If you enjoyed The Outsiders, you might like Jack Kerouac's On the Road, also available in Penguin Modern Classics.

'Gritty, emotional and very authentic'

From the Back Cover:

‘You know what a greaser is?’ Bob asked. ‘White trash with long hair.’

I felt the blood draining from my face. ‘You know what a Soc is? White trash with Mustangs and madras.’ And then, because I couldn’t think of anything bad enough to call them, I spat at them.

Bob shook his head, smiling slowly. ‘You could use a bath, greaser. And a good working over.’

The Soc caught my arm and twisted it behind my back, and shoved my face into the fountain. I fought, but the hand at the back of my neck was strong. I’m drowning, I thought, they’ve gone too far…
