Hatchet Jobs Expo 58 Coe Omnivore review

Hannah McGill VS Expo 58 by Jonathan Coe

In The Scotsman, Hannah McGill carved up Jonathan Coe‘s latest attempt to regain his former glory:

“By standing several paces back to smirk at his characters’ silliness, Coe prevents us from seeing them as feeling people and caring about their fates. Nor is this really a spoof (for it says little about then), or a satire (for it says nothing about now). It’s a spy thriller for people who don’t much like spies or being thrilled – for whom Le Carré is a bit complex, Fleming too dark and ’Allo ’Allo a little on the sexy side.”
