Jonathan Coe delivers something quite different. His is a unique voice that is deeply intelligent as well as funny, quirky and brilliantly observed. The Rotters' Club skilfully captures the 1970s with its strikes, terrorist attacks and growing racial tension. The Dwarves of Death is a clever and funny novel that manages to marry murder with music, while The Accidental Woman is the sensationally good tale of a woman unable to find any purpose or direction in her life. Coe discusses serious issues with a supreme satirical wit.
