Post Is a new Lost Generation of writers coming?
Following World War I, a group of writers began to analyze life by commenting on it. Known as The Lost Generation, these writers wrote novels that were sometimes not flattering yet also very much loved by readers because finally someone put down in prose what the reader felt.

It's my guess, but I think the current mood in the world is going to produce some Lost Generation type fiction. When you take into consideration the political climate, the pandemic, and looming fear of censorship, it’s hard not to imagine someone toiling to place well crafted, critical thought in novel form.

Quote:
The Lost Generation was the social generational cohort that came of age during World War I. "Lost" in this context refers to the "disoriented, wandering, directionless" spirit of many of the war's survivors in the early postwar period.[1] The term is also particularly used to refer to a group of American expatriate writers living in Paris during the 1920s.[2][3][4] Gertrude Stein is credited with coining the term, and it was subsequently popularized by Ernest Hemingway who used it in the epigraph for his 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises: "You are all a lost generation".[5][6]
In a more general sense, the Lost Generation is considered to be made up of individuals born between 1883 and 1900.[7]

I certainly think a lot of people will believe they are the next great social commentator or satirist, but only time will tell.
