Days of Wine and Rage
"This was social history - entertaining, fascinating and informing - in the making. Days of Wine and Rageexplores the tempo and shifts in mores and style of a dynamic decade - the 70s - in Australia s cultural development. Deftly interweaving literature and documentary history, Frank Moorhouse traces, from their avant-garde origins, significant threads in Australia s social fabric - the sub-cultural movements towards sexual liberation, cultural identity and a new creative and intellectual confidence. The multi-faceted examination evokes a lively impression of the ambience in which these social changes were generated and of the characters who got them going. Frank Moorhouse was hailed as the widest-read chronicler of the new intelligentsia and their uncertainties . Nowhere are his skills in literary and editorial craftsmanship and his acuity as observer of social nuance more evident than in this book."
