Jonathan Coe and John Crace The State We’re In

Friday 27 October 2023

Crowne Plaza Hotel

We invite two of our cleverest and sharpest social and political observers to dissect and explain what has ailed us for the last few years. Guardian sketch writer and author of A Farewell to Calm, John Crace sharpens his pen once again for a lacerating trawl through the tawdry events at Westminster over the past two years, and Jonathan Coe, Costa-winning author of Middle England, Rotters Club and Bournville shares his brutally funny and brilliantly observed portraits of Britain. How do we navigate through cloying nostalgia, disappearing Empireand ropey leadership and emerge into a brave new world?
