Part I: AUTHOR’S FACTS and HISTORICAL INFORMATION


ď ą By the time she was 17 years old, Susan

Eloise Hinton was a published author. While still in high school in her hometown--Tulsa, Oklahoma--Hinton put in words what she saw and felt growing up and called it The Outsiders, a now classic story of two sets of high school rivals, the Greasers and the Socs (for society kids). ď ą Because her hero was a Greaser and an outsider, and her tale was one of gritty realism, Hinton launched a revolution in young adult literature.


ď ą Since her narrator was a boy, Hinton's publishers suggested that she publish under the name of S. E. Hinton; they feared their readers wouldn't respect a "macho" story written by a woman. ď ą Hinton says today, "I don't mind having two identities; in fact, I like keeping the writer part separate in some ways. And since my alter ego is clearly a 15-year-old boy, having an authorial self that doesn't suggest a gender is just fine with me."


ď ą Today, more than twenty-five years after its first publication, The Outsiders ranks as a classic, still widely read, and one of the most important and taboo-breaking books in the field. ď ą Finally someone was writing about the real concerns and emotions of a teenager. The Outsiders marked the beginning of a new kind of realism in books written for the young adult market, and Hinton's next four books followed suit.


ď ą Once published, The Outsiders gave her a lot of publicity and fame, and also a lot of pressure. ď ąS.E. Hinton was becoming known as "The Voice of the Youth" among other titles. This kind of pressure and publicity resulted in a 3 year long writer's block.


ď ą She wrote her second book while she was in college at the University of Tulsa, studying to be a teacher. ď ą "I don't have the nerve or physical stamina to teach," she says. "I did my student teaching, but I couldn't leave the kids and their problems behind me; I'd go home and worry about them. I think people who are good teachers do one of the most important jobs there is; I can't praise them highly enough."


ď ą David Inhofe, who is now her husband, was her boyfriend then and was instrumental in helping her get her second book written. Hinton was suffering from writer's block.


ď ą Inhofe refused to go out with her at night unless she wrote two pages during the day, and slowly but steadily, over four months, she compiled the manuscript that became That Was Then, This is Now, a story of drugs, delinquency, and a tough kid making a tough decision. ď ą She and David were married in 1970; the second book was published in 1971.


Hinton’s books include: The Outsiders That was Then, This is Now Rumble Fish Tex Taming The Star Runner


ď ą The Outsiders was published in 1967, a restless time in the United States when teenagers were outspoken and rebellious. ď ą They hated the Vietnam War and the establishment that caused it to continue. They resented the fact that young people from minorities and underprivileged backgrounds were not given opportunities to succeed.


ď ą To voice their dissatisfaction , they had sit-ins and protests; many became hippies, and other turned to drugs. It was this society that formed the background for Hinton’s novel.
