These are some important titles that Teen Pulp would like to see back in print.
The Big Cage by Robert Lowry, Doubleday, 1949.
Perhaps the original beat novel, this fictional, but mostly autobiographical, book details the coming-of-age and cross country journey of an aspiring writer.
The Tattooed Heart by Theodora Keogh, P. Davies, 1953.
Penned by the expatriate rebellious granddaughter of Teddy Roosevelt, this novel chronicles a darkly hinged romance between two youngsters living on Long Island.
Henry 3 by Joseph Krumgold, Atheneum, 1967.
The only book in Krumgold's trilogy not to win the prestigious Newbery Award. Out of print since 1971.
Hey, Big Spender! by Frank Bonham, Dutton, 1972.
One of the most entertaining of Frank Bonham'n novels set in Dogtown, based on the Watts area of Los Angeles. A book with a strong social message by this legendary pulp author.
Confessions of a Teenage Baboon by Paul Zindel, Harper & Row, 1977.
The pulitzer-prize winning playwright's most personal novel that was later adapted into the play Amulets Against the Dragon Forces.
Flames Going Out by Kin Platt, Methuen, 1980.
One of the last and most controversial books for young adults that the prolific author Kin Platt had published. Among other things, Kin Platt is known for his work as a cartoonist, writer for Hanna-Barbera cartoons (Top Cat, The Jetsons) and as the author for the Max Roper detective series.
Fat, A Love Story by Barbara Wersba, Harper & Row, 1987.
An unusual love story set on Long Island by one of the most highly regarded YA authors of all time.
Wersba is most well known for her classic book The Dream Watcher (1968) that was later adapted into a play.
