Frustrated novelist James Walker is setting off for the heartland of America to reinvigorate himself after years spent living a drab life in a drab English city. The institution for which he is destined, Benedict Arnold University - 'Take a BA at BA' - is still in the grip of McCarthyism, but Walker soon discovers that certain members of BA's academic staff insist that he throws himself right into the swing of things ...Characterized by Bradbury's trademark satirical wit, Stepping Westward expertly explores the push-pull relationship of '60s modernism and '50s reservation.
