After the Good War American in transitions
After The Good War, years of peace pervaded the United States. Except for Rosie Riveter and the resurgence of feminism. Except for returning shellshocked G. I.s and the two or threemartini lunch. Except for the G. I. Bill that changed higher education. Except for Tuskegee Airmen and the Red Ball Express facing Brown v. Board of Education and Little Rock. Except for the Atomic Bomb. This is a novel examining all the changes facing men and women returning from World War II and its horrors. Set at the school of architecture at the University of Alabama.
A disarming narrative about people grappling with the immediate aftermath of the Second World War.-- Kirkus Reviews
