Product description

Review

The life and light that flooded Middle England is preserved and multiplied in Mr Wilder & Me. . . a satisfyingly sweeping novel that still manages to push the form in new directions. As good as anything he's written - a novel to cherishObserver

An account of Billy Wilder's later years that sweeps beautifully from Hollywood to Greece and London while all the time reflecting on the horrors of 20th-century Europe ― FT, Best Books of 2020

Effortlessly pleasurable and deceptively simple. Mr Wilder & Me doesn't lack resonance, yet stays light on its feet. The whole book feels like some marvellous party where you ricochet from one good conversation to another ― The Times

The dialogue's sharp, the comic timing excellentSunday Times

One of my favourite writers . . . a thoughtful tender readGood Housekeeping

A beautiful, bittersweet novel that is itself crying out for the silver screen treatment . . . sheer delightScotsman

Absolutely wonderfulNigella Lawson

A tender portrait. Coe's close-up on Wilder doesn't just celebrate the man but embodies his glorious ability to say sad things in a funny way, and vice versa ― Daily Telegraph

Elegantly brings together Calista's and Wilder's worlds ― TLS

A love letter to the spirit of cinema ― Guardian --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Book Description

The dazzling new novel about fame, time and nostalgia from the bestselling author of Middle England --This text refers to the paperback edition.
