Stories from our so called generation.

Up close and personal, Born in the 1980s tells the story of a generation coming of age. As the reality of the adult world begins to bite, love and lust, broken dreams and heartbreak and emotional take the place of teenage hopes. This is a generation finding its feet and carving out its place in the world.

Born in the 1980s (Route 21) is a title in the Route Series of Contemporary Stories.

‘If you were born in the 1980s and want to reminisce abolut “growing up”, are twentysomething and want to show your feelings instead of telling them, or not twentysomething and just want to learn something about the “next wave”, this is the book for you. It definitely captures the spirit of a generation up and coming.‘ – The Bloomsbury Review.
