'1973 Nervous Breakdown' offers a fever chart of a year of uncertainty, fragility, and change, a year in which post-war prosperity crumbles and modernism gives way to postmodernism. Killen ransacks newspapers, magazines, novels, films, TV shows and music to bring to life traumatic events. The fate of the family, the future of the presidency, the sanity of the masses - all of these bedrocks of society are threatened. 1973 marks the pivotal year of a decade whose impact on our own cultural zeitgeist remains considerable - a decade in sore need of liberation both from the long shadow of the 1960s and from the backwards shadow cast by the 1980s. With this book, Andreas Killen offers a lively and revelatory analysis of one of the most important periods in the second half of the 20th century.
