Reviews

The life and light that flooded Middle England is preserved and multiplied in Mr Wilder & Me. . . a satisfyingly sweeping novel that still manages to push the form in new directions. As good as anything he's written - a novel to cherish * Observer *
An account of Billy Wilder's later years that sweeps beautifully from Hollywood to Greece and London while all the time reflecting on the horrors of 20th-century Europe * FT, Best Books of 2020 *
Effortlessly pleasurable and deceptively simple. Mr Wilder & Me doesn't lack resonance, yet stays light on its feet. The whole book feels like some marvellous party where you ricochet from one good conversation to another * The Times *
The dialogue's sharp, the comic timing excellent * Sunday Times *
One of my favourite writers . . . a thoughtful tender read * Good Housekeeping *
A beautiful, bittersweet novel that is itself crying out for the silver screen treatment . . . sheer delight * Scotsman *
Absolutely wonderful * Nigella Lawson *
A tender portrait. Coe's close-up on Wilder doesn't just celebrate the man but embodies his glorious ability to say sad things in a funny way, and vice versa * Daily Telegraph *
Elegantly brings together Calista's and Wilder's worlds * TLS *
A love letter to the spirit of cinema * Guardian *
