Review:

At a time when people are looking back on the 1970s with nostalgia, Jonathan Coe's The Rotters' Club is a timely reminder of how ghastly that benighted decade was in Britain. Set in the "industrial" heartland of the West Midlands, it chronicles the growing pains of four Brummie schoolboys--Philip, Sean, Doug, and Benjamin--who must come to terms not only with the normal pangs of adolescence but with terrible knitwear, ludicrous pop music, nightmarish food, and insidious racism, all set against the awful, surreal, and tragicomic reality of a postimperial nation.

The book suffers in its programmatic attempts to make the four boys and their families symbolize, or represent, something important to do with British life. Doug, for instance, symbolizes Industrial Decline--his dad is a shop steward at the doomed British Leyland Longbridge plant. Sean symbolizes Sexual Liberation--at least he's the one who seems most likely to get his rocks off. And young Ben Trotter would appear to represent A Young Jonathan Coe. But if this aspect of the novel seems contrived, then the author's capricious, deft, wryly comedic, and touchingly empathetic style keeps things chugging along, as he knits together the troubles and tragedies of some fairly ordinary people living through fairly extraordinary years. --Sean Thomas, Amazon.co.uk

From the Back Cover:

"If there's a contemporary novelist who combines sharp and sometimes savage social commentary with the classic, full-blooded pleasures novels are supposed to give readers as well as Jonathan Coe does, I must have missed him."
--Charles Taylor, Salon.com

"Even those of us who didn't come of age in 1970s Birmingham will hear echoes of our own youth--the pangs of embarrassment, the anguish of uncertainty, the awkwardness of success [are] vividly present here."
--Mike Francis, The Oregonian

"Momentous--it so roundly depicts the inner trials of its characters and so convincingly recreates their world that it is hard not to read it all the way through at a single sitting...Both reflective and compelling, satirical and tender, wildly imaginative and painstakingly realistic.”
--Chris Lehmann, The Washington Post Book World

"With his hyper-lucid prose and eye for the whimsical, the absurd and the quintessentially human, Jonathan Coe is Britain's best contemporary fictional chronicler."
--Will Self

“Please, God . . . if there’s a next life, let me write as well as Jonathan Coe. The Rotters’ Club offers a thick slice of seventies Birmingham—sharp, acerbic, and menacingly true; a sad, funny, thoroughly engaging look at compromise, complicity, and change in a decade many of us would choose to forget. I want more. Now.”
—-Anthony Bourdain, author of Kitchen Confidential and A Cook’s Tour

“Jonathan Coe is the most exciting young British novelist writing today, and The Rotters’ Club is yet another in an unbroken string of entrancing achievements.”
—-Bret Easton Ellis

"A must-read for anyone who cares about contemporary literature.”
—-Katie Owen, The Telegraph

The Rotters Club - Jonathan Coe s iconic 1970s coming-of-age novel Winner of the Everyman Wodehouse prize, The Rotters Club follows Benjamin Trotter - bestselling author Jonathan Coe s most iconic character - through the hilarious and, at times, touching trials and tribulations of growing up in 1970s Britain. Unforgettably funny and painfully honest, Jonathan Coe s tale of Benjamin Trotter and his friends coming of age during the 1970s is a heartfelt celebration of the joys and agonies of growing up. Featuring, among other things, IRA bombs, prog rock, punk rock, bad poetry, first love, love on the side. Prefects, detention, a few bottles of Blue Nun, lots of brown wallpaper, industrial strife, and divine intervention in the form of a pair of swimming trunks. Set against the backdrop of the decade s class struggles, tragic and riotous by turns, packed with thwarted romance and furtive sex, The Rotters Club will be enjoyed by readers of Nick Hornby and William Boyd and anyone who ever experienced adolescence the hard way. One of those sweeping, ambitious yet hugely readable, moving and richly comic novels that you find all too rarely in English fiction.a masterpiece Daily Telegraph Very funny.a compulsive and gripping read. Coe had achieved that rare feat: a novel stuffed with characters you really care for The Times A book to cherish, a book to reread, a book to buy for all your friends Independent on Sunday Jonathan Coe s novels are filled with biting political satire, moving and astute observations of life and hilarious set pieces that have made him one of the most popular writers of his generation.

Descripción Penguin Books Ltd. Paperback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, The Rotters' Club, Jonathan Coe, Jonathan Coe's widely acclaimed novel is set in the 1970s against a distant backdrop of strikes, terrorist attacks and growing racial tension. A group of young friends inherit the editorship of their school magazine and begin to put their own distinctive spin onto events in the wider world. A zestful comedy of personal and social upheaval, The Rotters' Club captures a fateful moment in British politics - the collapse of 'Old Labour' - and imagines its impact on the topsy-turvy world of the bemused teenager: a world in which a lost pair of swimming trunks can be just as devastating as an IRA bomb.
