9780141314570: The Outsiders (Puffin Modern Classics)

The Outsiders by S E Hinton is a ground-breaking, timeless story by a brilliant writer.

'. . . the hand at the back of my neck was strong. I'm drowning, I thought . . .'

The Socs' idea of having a good time is beating up Greasers like Ponyboy. Ponyboy knows what to expect and knows he can count on his brothers and friends - until the night someone takes things too far.

The original teenage rebel story. The 40th anniversary edition.

S. E. Hinton was only seventeen when The Outsiders was first published in the USA. She grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where the story takes place, and lived in a borderline neighbourhood mixing with both greasers and socs. This experience helped her to understand the boys about whom she writes. The Outsiders was made into a major film, directed by Francis Ford Coppola.

S.E. Hinton went on to write several novels for teenagers including: Tex, Rumble Fish and That Was Then, This Is Now. Married with one son, S.E. Hinton was the first recipient of the American Library Association's YASD/SLJ Award for her oustanding contribution to Young Adult Literature.

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…

Book Description Puffin Classics, 2003. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. Neu Neuware, Importqualität, auf Lager, Versand per Büchersendung - Greasers, Rockers, different place, different name - but wherever they are, they're outsiders; the rough, tough, long-haired boys from the other side of town, with little hope of Mustangs, madras shirts and the good things of American life in the Sixties. Their story is told by Ponyboy, a greaser with good reason to rear the lucky boys in Mustangs, and a witness to the savage baiting that leads his best friend to manslaughter. More than a story of hatred and violence, also a story of loyalty and friendship as teenagers of the urban slums search for personal dignity and a place in the world. 240 pp. Englisch.
