John Wain's Charles Lumley (Hurry On Down, 1953), Amis's JimDixon (Lucky Jim
, 1954) and Iris Murdoch's Jake Donaghue (Under the Net, 1954) were bracketed
together before John Osborne's play Look Back in Anger prompted the
catchphrase 'angry young man'. Misleading though it was, it went on being
applied to characters of the sort that emerged in a number of novels: John
Braine's Room at the Top (1957), Alan Sillitoe's Saturday Night and Sunday
Morning (1958), Keith ...

... associate Amis with a group of writers described by the journalistic tag "angry
young men." By the end of the 1950's, Lucky Jim could plausibly be linked to a
number of other recent works that seemed to readers to define a distinctly new
and urgent response to the profound social changes taking place in postwar
England: John Wain's Hurry on Down (1953), Iris Murdoch's Under the Net (1954

|ohn Wain's first novel, Hurry on Down (1953), had a certain adroitness, and it
accrued to itself an additional interest, for it was, along with Kingsley Amis's
Lucky Jim and Iris Murdoch's Under the Net, one of the early works of a new
group of young British writers. ... This ending, gotten up even as it was in
factitious irony, was only slightly less crass than that of its logical successor, John
Braine's Room at the Top. ... George Links, is that commonplace modern literan
figure, the anti-hero.

For instance, John Wain's Hurry on down, Kingsley Amis's Lucky Jim and Iris
Murdoch's Under the Net were all published in 1954, two years before John
Osborne's "Look Back in Anger" and three years before Braine's Room at the Top
. Whatever one may think of their literary merits, they can be said to have
precipitated the genre. (George Orwell's Keep the Aspidistra Flying and Coming
up for Air, predecessors of the anti-hero novel, were both published just before
the war, of course.) ...
