The James Tait Black Memorial Prize(s) are literary prizes awarded for literature written in the English language. They, along with the Hawthornden Prize, are Britain’s oldest literary awards.
‘1965 – THE YEAR THE BOOMERS BEGAN TO BOOM Your parents’ generation is untrustworthy and the world you were born into is disintegrating in war and cultural upheaval. What do you do? Your alcoholic father and your newest friend’s brother die on opposite sides of the world on the same day. What do you do? If your name is Jonathan Randall, you and your friends abandon finessing your way through life as a high school senior. You go wherever you need to go to discover how courageous dedication can live inside flawed humanity. You stand up to ignorant school administrators, abusive parents, and the Ku Klux Klan. You seek what and whom you can honor. You accept whatever help you can get and choose to trust whoever journeys with you to discover what is really real and really worthwhile. And you throw in a little surfing and laughter whenever you can.’
