An Informal History Of The 1920sBook - 1931
"A style that is verve itself." -- New York Times
"A perfectly grand piece of historical record and synthetic journalism."
-- Chicago Daily Tribune
From Frederick Lewis Allen, former editor-in-chief of Harper's magazine, comes a classic history of 1920s America, from the end of World War I to the stock market crash and the beginning of The Great Depression. Originally published in 1931, Only Yesterday has an exuberance and proximity to its subject--the Roaring Twenties in all its scandal and glory--that uniquely captures the feel of the era.
