MR. WILDER AND ME
Jonathan Coe
In conversation with Susannah Simons

The latest dazzling new novel from prize-winning, best selling author, Jonathan Coe, is set first in Greece in the heady summer of 1977 and then in Germany.

Based on the final productive years of the famed Hollywood director, Billy Wilder, this is a story of how to recapture youth and how to manage an exploration of a dark family history.

A naïve young woman, Calista, joins the film mogul on his journey into an unfamiliar way of life.

This is undoubtedly one of Coe’s most intriguing novels – a mixture of nostalgia and humour bound together against a brilliant backdrop of the highs and lows of the film industry and with just a hint at Me Too.
