The ALAN Review, v9 n1 Fall 1981
The articles in this journal issue focus on adolescent literature. In the first article, author Sue Ellen Bridgers explains how she writes books, while the second article offers an analysis of the recent works of Paul Zindel. The third article presents a discussion of the treatment of outsiders, such as the mentally ill, in four Roy Brown mysteries. The fifth article deals with the image of the teacher in adolescent fiction, and the sixth provides a personal perspective on the works of Robert Cormier. The seventh article traces the theme of disillusionment and despair from J. D. Salinger's "Catcher in the Rye" to Cormier's novels. The issue also contains a review of media materials for use in teaching adolescent literature, brief reviews of new books, and summaires of presentations given by authors at a recent meeting in Canada.
