Synopsis

From the late 1940s through the JFK years, America was the home office of literary innovation. Writers forged new styles with the rapidly changing times, and generated new ideas that fit the challenges of late modernity. "Beyond the Gray Flannel Suit" shows how particular landmark books took on the hot-button subjects of the 1950s: race and religious difference; social class and the suburbs; the youth culture; conformity and group think; and much else.
