Product details

Product description


Brilliantly funny . . . a compelling state of the nation novel, full of light and shade, which vividly charts modern Britain's tragicomic slide (Economist)

Expansive and often very funny . . . Coe - a writer of uncommon decency - reminds us that the way out of this mess is through moderation, through compromise, through that age-old English ability to laugh at ourselves (Observer)

A pertinent, entertaining study of a nation in crisis ('Books of the Year' Financial Times)

His affectionately witty attitude to our human foibles is always uplifting . . . Superb (The Times)

In Middle England, Coe shows an understanding of this country that goes beyond what most cabinet ministers can muster . . . he subtly builds a picture that exposes the cracks in society . . . he is a master of satire but pokes fun subtly, without ever being cruel, biting or blatant . . . his light, funny writing makes you feel better (Evening Standard)

Tackling his characters' opposing points of view, he draws a portrait of a recognisable Britain baffled by its loss of industry and jobs, and of everyday people shocked by a rise of acceptable racism and xenophobia. It's also very, very funny (Stylist)

Millions of words have been and will be written on Brexit but few will get to the heart of why it is happening as incisively as Middle England (John Boyne Irish Times)

This is a picture of England that comes from a place of compassion and understanding (inews)

Coe is as funny and tender as ever, restoring some humanity to the tumultuous societal backdrop (Grazia)

Middle England combines top-class soap opera storytelling with melancholy insight into what it means to be English (Metro)

Book Description
