We are thrilled to welcome bestselling British author, Jonathan Coe, back to Mr B’s this November to introduce the book which has been dubbed “the novel of his career”.
Set in the Midlands and London over the last eight years, “Middle England” is an entertaining and thought-provoking state of-the-nation tale that observes a vivid cast of characters, as they struggle to navigate the personal and political challenges of our strange, contemporary Britain. Meet a warring married couple divided by the future of their nation, a grandfather whose final act will be a postal vote for the EU referendum, a politically challenged political commentator (!) and a Tory politician savaged by Twitter trolls. Brimming with compassion, nostalgia, irony and rage, “Middle England” is a novel about the absurdity of today’s political classes and of those that have been left behind…
Join us as we chat to the man himself about Brexit bust-ups, fiction and faction and the state of our nation (and beyond).
