Top Ten Tuesday: Books Set in the Interwar Years

This is also a week when I have noticed a strange coincidence in my current reading: three of the books I am currently reading are set in the interbellum years between the two World Wars: the roaring twenties and the increasingly ominous 1930s as war encroaches. And as this is a Freebie week, I thought this might be an interesting focus. It is an interesting time: in hindsight the urge towards modernity and optimism and hopefulness - to a jazz soundtrack of course, in an art deco ballroom populated with flappers - looks just a little desperate and hollow but still strangely compelling.
