The Closed Circle: 'As funny as anything Coe has written' The Times Literary Supplement
Discover bestselling author Jonathan Coe's hilarious sequel to The Rotters' Club!
It's the end of the century and Benjamin Trotter and friends are all grown up.
Life is a ceaseless whirl of jobs, marriages, kids - and self-inflicted angst. Despite the shiny optimism of Blair's Britain, youthful hopes and dreams feel betrayed. Is the Government (and by extension Benjamin's MP brother Paul) to blame? Or are the 'rotters' themselves - only passingly faithful to their dreams - really at fault?
The Closed Circle depicts a group of former school friends as older, wiser and disillusioned in Blair's Britain at the turn of the millennium, proving that the present can never truly be disentangled from the past.
THE STORY CONTINUES IN MIDDLE ENGLAND.
