Malcolm Bradbury’s humorous look at Britain’s transition to midcentury modernity

Malcolm Bradbury’s humorous look at Britain’s transition to midcentury modernity. After spending a year teaching in an American university in the 1950s, Malcolm Bradbury returned to England only to realize that his native country had become nearly as mystifying to him as the American Midwest.

All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go. Malcolm Bradbury. At the end of the 1950s, a debonair and well-dressed Malcolm Bradbury returned from a year in the United States, slightly shattered but not quite broken, to a Britain that had thoroughly changed. Commercial television had started, the bee-hive hairdo was in, and there were supermarkets instead of grocer's shops. In this piece of vintage Bradbury, the author of The History Man takes on Consumer Society and the British character as only he can. 'He restores belief in the power of laughter' Harpers & Queen.
