Robert Cormier: Daring to Disturb the Universe

Out of stock
Through the 1950s and 60s, most fiction written for teens was saccharine and didactic. Then in 1974, Robert Cormier published The Chocolate War and "set free the acknowledgement of the very real presence of evil in young lives," critic Michael Cart says. From his groundbreaking first book to the complex I Am the Cheese to the provocative The Rag and Bone Shop, here is an examination of a novelist who "took his . . . readers into the heart of darkness and turned the lights on there." Selected bibliography. Appendix. Library edition with trade jacket added.
