    Inspired by her father's teenage diaries, Melanie Tebbutt has researched adolescent working-class masculinities of the 1920s and 1930s in the context of contemporary leisure developments such as the cinema, boys' clubs, street cultures and dancing. In this book she offers a nuanced perspective on the youthful male conformity of the time, with a focus on the emotional experiences and often tentative self-making which are revealed in a range of autobiographies and personal accounts.
