The Best Books About Outsiders

The outsider is a classic literary character who, for one reason or another, lives on the outskirts of so-called "normal" society. They're able to offer a unique, unflinching, and sometimes distorted view on the culture they don't inhabit. The outsider may be cast aside or may be there by choice, but they give a fresh, honest, and often brutal reflection of both the world and our inner lives.
