Are there any novels containing 40s-50's vocabulary and speech? I know, look for books written in the 40's and 50's, but which ones capture the way average citizens spoke?

Just like present day, people spoke in all sorts of ways. Slang in one place wasn't known in another, accents, there are so many variables. Add to that the fact that there wasn't as much travel as there is now, or social media, and the pockets of unique speech become even more specific.

Honestly Gravity's Rainbow does a good job of it, especially the "low"/pop culture side of things.

Raise High the Roofbeam Carpenters/all of Salinger's work. Roofbeam is my favorite. Super short, funny, and a great snapshot of America at the time.
