Jonathan Coe’s Middle England charts a nation’s lurch from the frenzy of the 2012 Olympics to the aftermath of the Brexit referendum, chronicling the changes and the cracks within families and between generations -- a darkly comic look at modern England.

‘Expansive and often very 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.’ The Observer

‘Un roman puissant, addictif, d'autant plus impressionnant qu'il parvient à entrelacer avec brio considérations très politiques et trajectoires individuelles denses, sinueuses, heurtées.’ L’Express. Winner of the Costa Novel Award 2019.
