The Outsiders At Midlife

Here's an interview with the grown-up S.E. Hinton, author of the YA novel, The Outsiders, first published forty years ago. The book still sells more than 500,000 copies a year. It's hard but strangely comforting to imagine the teen sensation Hinton as she describes herself now, "a middle-aged woman wandering around the grocery store, looking to see what to buy for dinner.”


Thanks for posting this link. Like so many books, The Outsiders made me feel like someone got it (whatever "it" really was), even though the life experiences were so far from my own.
