This is a nimble and user-friendly study tour of British youth culture navigating a series of iconic post-WWII novels. From Ted to Mod, Droog to Punk, Rude Boy to Sick Boy and Renton, Stephen Ross ably takes on All the Young Dudes, providing a highly engaging and well-researched context for reading novels that, in his words, "think with and about" changing forms of generation, style, class, masculinity, sexuality, and nationality. * Aaron Jaffe, Frances Cushing Ervin Professor of English, Florida State University, USA *
In Stephen Ross's important, compellingly readable account, he shows how fiction not only thinks about youth culture but thinks with it, to address anxieties about authenticity, masculinity, and generational identity. * Leif Sorensen, Associate Professor of English, Colorado State University, USA *
