* ''Literature/TheGreatGatsby'' (1925) is probably the best-known novel set in the 1920s. It features a number of classic elements of the era, including the Depression-era dust bowl, Jazz Age parties, and wealthy bootleggers. For that matter, much of Creator/FScottFitzgerald oeuvre was produced in the 1920s and set there.

* ''[[Literature/TheAnderssons Nya tider]]'' by Solveig Olsson-Hultgren takes place in 1920 and 1921. A brand new fashion has started to emerge (Greta and Rebecka even cut their hair short!), and now the first election in Sweden, where women have the right to vote, is coming up in the fall. Jazz is the new popular music for young people.

"The era of wonderful nonsense", as conservative newspaper columnist Westbrook Pegler later termed it. A dizzy, giddy time of [[SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll petting parties, bootleg gin, jazz]], and [[TheFlapper flappers]]. When coffee and movie tickets cost a dime, trolley rides cost a nickel (the same as hot dogs or hamburgers), newspapers cost two cents. and sliced bread was considered the greatest invention ever.

Style is almost exclusively ArtDeco ''moderne'', all minimalist lines and coolly fluid shapes. (Side point- Art Deco's fascination with streamlining household objects whose actual wind resistance is irrelevant proved popular because leveling incomes led for the first time to a group of people who could afford good design without having to afford household servants as well. It seems that a streamlined Art Deco lamp is easier to ''dust'' than a frilly Victorian one...) There were plenty of additional opportunities for employing that style in the many new consumer appliances that came on the market. Electric refrigerators, vacuum cleaners, fans, toasters, phonographs, radios and other gadgets were sold by the millions, with installment plans allowing more people than ever to buy them. And automobiles stopped being referred to as "horseless carriages" mainly used for Sunday rides and became a wanted everyday commodity.

commodity, ´pretty much helped by its wartime use, the same for "flying machines" and "air balloons" (unfortunately, one of the two would have a tragic end in mainstream terms in the late 30s).



Characters include gangsters and G-men, flappers and their "sheiks" (sort of proto-{{metrosexual}} young males), languid white movie idols and jolly black jazz singers and dancers, and lots of cheery collegiate types who wear huge fur coats, straw hats and wide Oxford bags and play ukuleles while [[DanceSensation dancing the Charleston]] and shouting "[[TwentyThree 23]] skidoo!" People sat on flagpoles and swallowed live goldfish, and stunt men swung golf clubs and played tennis while standing atop airplanes in flight. The basic idea was to shock, amaze and amuse at all costs; there were apparently some women of the era who would greet their guests ''in the bath''.

As for entertainment, [[UsefulNotes/TheSilentAgeOfHollywood silent films]] became an art medium of their own with classic films like ''Film/TheWind'' and ''Film/{{Metropolis}}'' setting new heights for screen drama and the great silent comedians like Creator/CharlieChaplin, Creator/HaroldLloyd and Creator/BusterKeaton gaining enormous popularity. The fact that they didn't have sound meant that movies still hadn't killed off {{Vaudeville}} or MinstrelShows just yet, but the advent of talkies late in the decade finished the job, however. Radio progressed quickly through the last of its experimental phases and was firmly established as a mass-market medium by the end of the decade (including radios in cars, brought to you by some company called Motorola), also establishing what is now known as "popular music" in the process. Sports became items of true passion with Babe Ruth, Jack Dempsey, Red Grange and others became heroes for the common man. Basketball, golf and hockey also gained popularity, and bowling became a popular informal sport.
