Brexit we need Daily Telegraph A pertinent entertaining study of a nation in crisis Financial Times Books of the YearVery 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 Observe. I hadn t read any of Jonathan Coe s novels until about ten days ago Reading about this new book and seeing that it was a seuel to two previous novels I decided to go back to the beginning Over a span of about four days I read The Rotter s Club and Closed Circle These were two of the best novels that I have read in many yearsI was very pleased to see a continuation of these characters stories And a continuation it is while it could be read as a standalone novel it really depends on the reader s awareness of what happened in the previous two books Once again I became emotionally invested in these characters and their experiencesIt s a bit strange to read a novel where one of the main characters is Brexit As a foreigner in the UK I have found this to be a deeply uncomfortable period In some ways Coe overdoes the expository elements about Brexit it almost seems as if he s writing a book to be read in 50 years when people have not lived this first hand But it all makes sense all of the experiences of the characters to fit into this cataclysmic event and it ties up rather neatly perhaps too neatly at the end Of course given the way this novel does end it is entirely possible that there may be another seuelAfter reading the first two books I was struck by how many similarities there were to Anthony Powell s A Dance to the Music of Time I went to the author s website and found that this was in some ways an influencer at least on the first two novelsOf the three I feel that Closed Circle is by far the best but all three of these novels are excellent and paint a brilliant picture of a group of characters as they age Bravo to Mr Coe Mercator is through moderation through compromise through that age old English ability to laugh at ourselves Observe.

N that seems to have forgotten he exists whilst in London his friend Doug doesnt 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 rocksCoes back with a bang Middle England is the novel about. This was most disappointing I liked The Rotter s Club I come from Birmingham and was there at the pub bombings so I have always felt a sense of kinship with the characters But they have developed into middle class bores with a sense of entitlement They don t seem to do much in the way of work seemingly able to live very well because they bought houses in London at the right time Sophie is suspended from her lecturing but manages to begin a tv series and makes friends with the woman who is responsible How very charming but how very unlikely The main character manages to get his book on the Booker list Just ordinary folk then Brexit looms large and it is obvious where Coe s sympathies lie Brexiteers are naturally elderly unintelligent and racist While acknowledging that the government is a bunch of lying morons he won t admit that those who voted leave may have legitimate concerns and anger that don t include spitting at people of different races or refusing to recognise their humanity What is Coe s answer Go and live in France in an idyllic mill housegiving writing seminars to people who write in languages you can neither speak nor read How useful for the rest of us There are some amusing moments but these don t compensate for cardboard characters who are basically either repellent or boring or in the case of the children s entertainers redundant and silly I was expecting something better than this An exploration of the dynamics of different experiences and ideas and the complexities of modern Britain Instead there were stereotypical reactions and people from someone who feels a sense of superiority and detachment from the fray
