Fifties: A Women's Oral Historyby Brett Harvey
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
The author interviewed 92 women who were in their late teens to mid- 20s during the 1950s, and she uses extended quotes and life synopses to portray how women felt and acted during that decade. The first six chapters move chronologically through the phases of a woman's life, from college to marriage to motherhood; the second four chapters are about women who deviated from the norm in one way or another. No index.
