Abstract:

In 1967 the celebrated sportswriter Robert Lipsyte published The Contender, a novel that almost singlehandedly transformed the superficial, idealistic fare known as teenage fiction into the serious, realistic genre of young adult literature. In The Contender and other young adult novels - among them One Fat Summer, Jock and Jill, The Chemo Kid, and The Brave - Lipsyte explores with palpable authenticity such issues as social consciousness, self-transformation, and male.

Identity. With Presenting Robert Lipsyte, Michael Cart contributes the first study devoted to the writer and his work, a thoughtful examination informed not only by personal interviews with Lipsyte but by Cart's own extensive knowledge of young adult literature. Beautifully written and filled with aptly chosen quotations by and about the writer, Presenting Robert Lipsyte will be applauded by teachers and librarians and embraced by students from secondary through graduate.

School. Included are a preface, a chronology, notes and references, a selected bibliography, an appendix listing Lipsyte's awards and honors, and an index.
