Product Information. This book covers the American trailblazing artists of the twenties and thirties in Britain, the local musicians they influenced, specialist magazines, rhythm clubs, discographers and pundits, and the fascinating cloakand- dagger plots to defy the Musicians Union ban. P.G. Wodehouse and Nancy Mitford, herself a ‘Bright Young Thing’, portray the ‘Roaring Twenties’ in Britain in their novels. Both authors politely poke fun at the socialites and upper classes, but their novels give a good idea of the heady days of the s. The experiences during the War influenced British society, particularly women.
