Title

Robert Cormier's letter to Craig 28 February 1996

Description

In this four-page letter to his editor, Craig Virden, Robert Cormier defends his decision to label Tenderness a YA novel even though it features some departures from the genre, including an older protagonist and a morally ambiguous main character in Lori. He also discusses the removal of non-essential scenes, the development of the novel's central characters, racial and detective novel stereotypes, and politically correct language.
