Jonathan Coe photographed in the Finborough Theatre in West Brompton, London. Jonathan Coe has a new book out called "Mr. Wilder & Me" about the American Film Director Billy Wilder's film "Fedora". Jonathan Coe is an English novelist and writer. His work has an underlying preoccupation with political issues, although this serious engagement is often expressed comically in the form of satire. For example, What a Carve Up! reworks the plot of an old 1960s spoof horror film of the same name. It is set within the "carve up" of the UK's resources which was carried out by Margaret Thatcher's Conservative governments of the 1980s.
