Jonathan Coe presents Britannia Hospital

London Review Bookshop

‘A shockingly truthful caricature of Britain on the cusp of the Thatcher revolution.’ – Jonathan Coe

Marking 25 years since the all too early death of its remarkable director, the fiercely independent and always engaged Lindsay Anderson, we’re delighted to show the final part of his ‘state of the nation and psyche’ trilogy made with actor Malcolm McDowell and screenwriter David Sherwin. Britannia Hospital does what it says on the tin, offering an occasionally bloody satire on a country in crisis. If this sounds all too familiar, rest assured that acclaimed novelist and Anderson fan Jonathan Coe, famed for his own acute writerly incisions into the belly of Britain's hopes and fears, will be on hand to contextualise.
