Synopsis

Jonathan Coe's What A Carve Up! - part of the limited edition PENGUIN STREET ART series: timeless writing, enduring design.



'Tragedy had struck the Winshaws twice before, but never on such a terrible scale'



Newspaper-columnist Hilary gets thousands for telling it like it isn't; Henry's turning hospitals into carparks; Roddy's selling art in return for sex; down on the farm Dorothy's squeezing every last pound from her livestock; Thomas is making a killing on the stock exchange; and Mark is selling arms to dictators. In fact the Winshaw family are getting richer and crueller by the day. But once eccentric biographer Michael Owen uncovers their trail of greed, corruption and immoral doings the time seems ripe for their comeuppance . . .



'Probably the best English novelist of his generation' Nick Hornby



Jonathan Coe was born in Birmingham in 1961. He is the author of nine bestselling novels, including The Accidental Woman; A Touch of Love; What a Carve Up!; The House of Sleep, winner of the1998 Prix Medicis Etranger; The Rotters' Club, winner of the Everyman Wodehouse prize; The Closed Circle; The Rain Before it Falls and The Terrible Privacy of Maxwell Sim.
