  • The Outsiders

    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 flash cars, fine madras shirts and the good things of American life in the Sixties. Their story is told by Ponyboy, a Greaser with good reason to fear the Socs, the rich kids in Mustangs who come looking for trouble, and witness to the savage baiting that drives his best friend to manslaughter. More than a story of hatred and violence, this is also a story of loyalty and friendship as teenagers of the urban slums search for personal dignity and a place in the world.

Tales from the Inner City is a truly masterly work, bearing all of Shaun Tanís trademark wit and poignancy in both its prose and exquisite illustrations.
