The Outsiders

(罕)PZ 7.J5976O9 1967
S.E. Hinton 874.5754 /8457.1-1 “The dawn was coming then. All the lower valley was covered with mist, and sometimes little pieces of it broke off and floated away in small clouds. The sky was lighter in the east, and the horizon was a thin golden line. The clouds changed from gray to pink, and the mist was touched with gold. There was a silent moment when everything held its breath, and then the sun rose. It was beautiful.” (1)

First published in 1967, S.E. Hinton’s novel The Outsiders remains a staple in English classrooms across the country. Set in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the novel tells the story of social-class conflict between two rival gangs: the Greasers and the Socs (short for Socials). The novel spawned a popular movie adaptation, which was release in 1983. (3)

Toni Morrison Toni Morrison’s ironically-titled book tells the story of Ruby, Oklahoma, a fictional black community where the attack on a convent of women is perpetrated by jealous men in the adjacent town. Written with the migration of African-Americans west from the volatile south-east, the novel describes nearly a whole century of a town blessed with magical powers but riddled by jealousies few have yet acted upon. (2) 

一群解放黑奴與存活者的後裔,為了逃離一個充滿敵意的世界而集體出走,露比鎮是一個建築在正義、嚴苛的道德規範與恐懼之上的獨特社區。
但是在十七哩遠的地方,另一群自我放逐的群體,則聚集在她們自己的許諾之地上。
這是一則關於一群女子逃離露比鎮這九名男性居民將他們的痛苦、恐懼與殘暴怒氣加諸在她們身上的死亡與絕望記事。(博客來)
