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
