"Jonathan Coe" 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! (novel)/What a Carve Up! reworks the plot of an old 1960s spoof horror What a Carve Up! (film)/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 right wing Conservative Party (UK)/Conservative governments of the 1980s.If you enjoy these quotes, be sure to check out other famous novelists!
