Publisher's Summary

Jonathan Coe's new 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.

    "Brilliant if you've ever lived in the Midlands"

    I fall into the minority that not only grew up in Birmingham, but also studied at the school King Williams is based on, I even got the same bus as mentioned in the story, a couple of decades later though.



    For me the experience was like colouring in an unknown past, I remember thinking at one point that I could have been one of the characters had my life been transposed back to those times! It's difficult to imagine how this story would be received by anyone else.



    The narrator is good - although not the most convincing female voices I've heard from a male narrator.
