Check out a recently published volume that seems germaine to your
Philip D. Beidler, _Scriptures for a Generation: What We Were Reading in
the '60s_ (Athens & London: University of Georgia Press, 1994).
Beidler approaches his topic by examining a couple dozen authors whose
works he judges to have been canonical to the youthful, culturally aware
reading public. His short synopses of these writers' most popular books
are augmented by a rather idiosyncratic analysis of same, redeemed by a
very fine bibliography.
