Expo 58 by Jonathan Coe - Spies, girls and an Englishman abroad.

But Thomas's new-found sense of freedom comes at a price: two British spies are following him.For fans of Jonathan Coe's classic comic bestsellers What a Carve Up! and The Rotters' Club, this hilarious new novel, which is set in the Mad Men period of the mid 50s, will also be loved by readers of Nick Hornby, William Boyd and Ian McEwan.'Clever and funny, enthralling and moving. Wonderful!' Daily Mail'Rich and splendidly comic' Independent

Review:

Expo 58, like Our Man in Havana and all the best comic novels, reminds us that comedy is not the sugar that makes the medicine go down. Comedy is the medicine—medicine that exists not to cure you but to make you realize, once the medicine wears off, how sick you really are.” —New York Times Book Review

“[A] rip-roaringly funny satire by Coe.” —Kirkus, Starred Review

“Like the best books of this kind, Expo 58 is funny and smart...a light, blessedly short, dry English satire.” —Booklist, Starred review

“Coe is a gifted satirist...a droll, clever novel that ends on a bittersweet note...impressive” —Publishers Weekly

“Coe’s Expo 58 is a world of fakery and illusion.” —LA Review of Books

Expo 58 is Coe at his funny-serious best, offering idiosyncratic mixture of slapstick and profundity in a love-and-spies story set at the height of the cold war...pure enjoyment.” —Financial Times

“Brilliant and satisfying... This is entertainment of a very high order, and all the more delightful for being grounded in the more bizarre dimensions of reality, the inspiration of all the best fiction.” —Robert McCrum, The Guardian

“Delightfully funny and utterly absurd...tremendously good fun.” The Spectator

“A rich and splendidly comic confection.” Independent

“Masterful English novelist...Coe serves another of his absorbingly comic romps [in Expo 58].” —The Oregonian
