About this book
A remarkable history of the lost generation of the 1920s, a pleasure seeking band of bohemian party-goers and blue-blooded socialites who romped through the Jazz Age but often succumbed to drink, drugs and depression in the more serious 1930s. 'A shrewd and absorbing analysis' "Sunday Times".
The Bright Young People were one of the most extraordinary youth cults in British history. A pleasure-seeking band of bohemian party-givers and blue-blooded socialites, they romped through the 1920s gossip columns. This book chronicles England's 'lost generation' of the Jazz Age.
