There are certainly some writers whose work appeals to the young.
I loved Hesse, Camus, Dostoyevsky and any writer who, to my young mind, captured the feeling of confusion and alienation felt at that age (The Outsider was the perfect book to me).
Camus was of special appeal because he looked so damn good in pictures, sort of a literary Brando.
