The Roaring Twenties 17 Nov 2008

Historian Lucy Moore on the highs and lows of the Jazz Age

1920s America was a time of great change and high drama. In her new book, Anything Goes: A biography of the roaring twenties, Lucy Moore explores some of the characters and stories that characterise this extraordinary decade. From the hedonistic flappers, to the glamorous but brutal gangsters, to the jazz musicians and film stars. She charts the years of the hedonistic, high-spending boom, and the eventual bust in 1929 in circumstances not unlike those of today.

Anything Goes: A Biography of the Roaring Twenties by Lucy Moore is published by Atlantic Books, ISBN: 978-1843547778
