Overview

The Winshaw Legacy: Or, What a Carve Up! by Jonathan Coe

If Charles Dickens and Agatha Christie had ever managed to collaborate, they might have produced this shamelessly entertaining novel, which introduces readers to what may be the most powerful family in England—and is certainly the vilest. A tour de force of menace, malicious comedy, and torrential social bile, this book marks the American debut of an extraordinary writer.

What People are Saying About This

Jay McInerney

Superb…fiendishly clever…riveting…a nasty farce with lots of bathroom humor and violence which reminds me at least as much of Fawlty Towers as it does Midnight's Children.
