About this Event

Blackwell's is delighted to be joined by author, Jonathan Coe to discuss the book which the Costa judges called 'the perfect novel for now,' Middle England.

'The book everyone is talking about' - The Times

'A comedy for our times' - Guardian

Synopsis:

The country is changing and, up and down the land, cracks are appearing - within families and between generations. In the Midlands, Benjamin Trotter tries to help his aged father navigate a Britain that seems to have forgotten he exists, while in London his friend Doug doesn't understand why his teenage daughter is eternally enraged. Meanwhile, newlyweds Sophie and Ian can find nothing to agree on except the fact that their marriage is on the rocks . . .

Jonathan Coe FRSL is critically acclaimed English novelist and writer. His work has an underlying preoccupation with political issues, although this serious engagement is often expressed comically in the form of satire. Middle England, the third in his loose “Rotter’s Club” trilogy, won Best Novel at this year’s Costa Book Awards, as well as further prizes across Europe. He is represented by Caroline Wood at Felicity Bryan Associates, and is currently hard at work on his next novel.

Tickets for this event are £5. Doors will open at 6.45pm when there will be a small bar to purchase drinks from. Seating is unallocated. For more information, please contact our Customer Service Desk on 01865 333 623 or email events.oxford@blackwell.co.uk
