    Description
    Exploding into the world of teddy boys, milk-bars and rock 'n' roll, the Angry Young Men outraged the establishment and created a legend with works such as 'Look Back In Anger' and 'Room At The Top'.

    But, as Humphrey Carpenter's wickedly funny book shows, the writers who became known as "AYM" were in reality a wildly diverse group of varying talents - from jazz-loving lothario Kingsley Amis to rebel John Osborne, from skilful self-publicist Colin Wilson to upwardly mobile John Braine.

    This is the story of how they boozed and brawled their way to notoriety, how the media fuelled the myth and how, all too quickly, it fell apart.
