Challenging the status quo,
This review is from: Private Views: Voices from the Frontline of British Culture (Paperback)
This fascinating book contains interviews with a variety of practitioners in different cultural fields - theatre, fashion, comedy etc. What unites them is their feeling that something has gone deeply wrong with contemporary British and Western culture; that it has become straitened and afraid, complacent while at the same time convinced it is still somehow 'cutting edge'. The book helps skewer the musty orthodoxies of the generation of 1968 that have become received wisdom for so many on the cultural scene.
