David Wyatt is an authority on the literature and history of the American 1960s. His first book on the subject, Out of the Sixties: Storytelling and the Vietnam Generation (Cambridge, 1994), focused on the careers of ten writer-artists born between Pearl Harbor and Ike's election and included chapters on Bruce Springsteen, Sam Shepard, Alice Walker, and Louise Gluck. In 2014, he published When America Turned: Reckoning with 1968, a riveting narrative of the events of that fateful year.
