Genre: Prose

This is a novel about the hundreds of tiny connections between the public and private worlds and how they affect us all.

It's about the legacy of war and the end of innocence.

It's about how comedy and politics are battling it out and comedy might have won.

It's about how 140 characters can make fools of us all.

It's about living in a city where bankers need cinemas in their basements and others need food banks down the street.

It is Jonathan Coe doing what he does best — showing us how we live now.

Genre: Prose

William's life is beset with frustration: his band turns his melodic songs into grotesque parodies of Status Quo, and cool Madelaine dangles out of reach. Things could hardly get worse, it seems — until he becomes the only witness to a bizarre murder. "A very clever, very funny book…Brilliant" — "Sunday Times". "Like a Hitchcock movie on drugs…a novel of considerable gusto and panache" — "Observer". "It's about being young, poor, confused and in love…Sharp, lucid and witty" — "Guardian".
