Latest reviews

  • “A beautifully elegiac novel… One of the best movie-set novels, it sticks closely to the facts but turns them into an elegant, melancholy reflection on Wilder’s escape from Germany, his return to Berlin, and the troubled production of his late-career film maudit.”
    — Bookforum, Mar 28 2022
  • “Outstanding... In a sense, Mr Wilder and Me is the novel toward which Coe’s fiction has always been heading.”
