I love Jonathan Coe - have read all but Accidental woman and closed circle (but it is on my bookcase awaiting me.....). Fab.

Yes, loved the rotters club and closed circle. Will keep the accidental woman for when I need something fun to read (sometimes my reading group books need a bit of levity in between). He is ace.

House of sleep is great - the first one I read I think which started me off....

Will put Closed circle to the top of my to be read list in that case.

Oh Pruni, do read House of Sleep, it is the only Jonathan Coe book I have read and it is soooo good. It was one of those books I couldn't put down. Must get into him again

He might or he might not be, Pruni. I am selflessly willing to research this for you.

notasheep Mon 16-Jan-06 21:50:52

Mmm, I'll join this thread. Have recently finished 3rd re-reading of What A Carve Up and it's better every time. Have not read Closed Circle yet - may have to skip along to Amazon right now...

Love that book, notasheep It reminds me of the summer after my finals when I could finally read books I wanted to read rather than books I had to read, iyswim!

Oh right! him!, I thought you meant the Tory MP Sebastian Coe!

notasheep Mon 16-Jan-06 22:01:09

Maybe if the Mums net Jonathan Coe worshippers all made a donation we could have "an audience with Jonathan Coe"!!!!!

You're welcome to his brain, Pruni - I'll take the bits you can't get from Amazon.
