Best Books about Love and Paranoia in Cold War Britain and America

I do love compiling lists. And even better when it’s a list of books! So thank you to Shepherd, a great book site which asks authors to compile lists of books that reflect their own interests and passions. It’s worth checking out. To go with my novel How It Ends, set in post-WW2 Britain in the Cold War, I chose novels and books that are also set in this era and that I found helpful or inspiring while writing How It Ends.

Perhaps you’ve read some of these books? I found all of them useful and fascinating.
