From the opening of the preface: This study of the changing beliefs of the contemporary American novelist in our period of social crisis. More accurately, perhaps, it is a study of the changing beliefs of our period as they are reflected in the writers. Our time is the true protagonist of such an examination, and the artists are the witnesses at the investigation. I am using Ring Lardner to summarize the values of the 1920s, the boom period and jazz age of the American industrial culture which prefaced our present situation. The volume closes with John Steinbeck, who illuminates the new societal values of the 1940's as fully as Lardner does the twenties. The difference between these two Americans will illustrate the range of experience we have passed through in a decade of turmoil."
