Jonathan Coe is not a prolific writer of short stories - the seven in this collection make up his entire output .

Jonathan Coe is not a prolific writer of short stories - the seven in this collection make up his entire output (as against ten published novels) - but each one is a jewel of storytelling and characterization. Jonathan Coe. If Charles Dickens and Agatha Christie had ever managed to collaborate, they might have produced this shamelessly entertaining novel, which introduces readers to what may be the most powerful family in England-and is certainly the vilest. A tour de force of menace, malicious comedy, and torrential social bile, this book marks the American debut of an extraordinary writer.

The Accidental Woman book Jonathan Coe is one of those authors who usually provides a safe pair of hands in which to entrust oneself, fiction-wise, but I agree with.

The Accidental Woman book. Jonathan Coe's first novel, which introduced a wonderful new talent to English fiction.

The Accidental Woman is a wickedly funny novel from bestseller Jonathan Coe. For Maria, nothing is certain. Her life is a chain of accidents. From the author of the award-winning The Rotters' Club and What a Carve Up!, The Accidental Woman will be enjoyed by readers of Nick Hornby and William Boyd and centres on a quirky and highly individual woman who is still struggling to find her place in life. The Accidental Woman has a cocky individual voice of its ow. .here's precocious, rebellious talent' Mail on Sunday. Slyly parodies the clichés of most first novels' Guardian. A convincing stuffy of the random impetuses by which human lives tend to be governed.

If Maria’s memories were of an Oxford bathed in sunlight, we might as well respect them, except perhaps for parts of the third chapter, where the mood will be rather more autumnal

Jonathan Coe FRSL (/koʊ/; born 19 August 1961) is an 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. For example, What a Carve Up! reworks the plot of an old 1960s spoof horror film of the same name. It is set within the "carve up" of the UK's resources which was carried out by Margaret Thatcher's Conservative governments of the 1980s.

Jonathan Coe (Author). It was the first time I read a work by Coe. I immediately liked the laid back style, his humour and especially the way in which he tells the story, addressing the reader in the third person and bringing them to see exactly the story from his own point of view. The latter looks a bit detached and ironic and leads the reader to have the same approach. The problem of this book, however, is another. I am absolutely certain that Coe had so much fun in writing it. You can see from what he writes.

Jonathan Coe, born 19 August 1961 in Birmingham, is a British novelist and writer. His work usually has an underlying preoccupation with political issues, although this is often expressed seriously in the form of satire. For example, "What a Carve Up!" reworked the plot of an old 1960s spoof horror film of the same name, in the light of the 'carve up' of the UK's resources which some felt was carried out by Margaret Thatcher's right wing Conservative governments of the 1980s.

For Maria, nothing is certain. Her life is a chain of accidents. Friendship passes her by, and he's impressed by the devoted Ronny and his endless proposals of marriage.
