In May 2005 Penguin publishes 70 unique titles to celebrate the company's 70th birthday. When Penguin published What a Carve Up! in 1994, Jonathan Coe's lasting fame was assured. There followed a string of widely acclaimed novels that together chart the changing social fabric of Britain over the last thirty years. 9th and 13th brings together several uncollected pieces of fiction and non-fiction, some of which never before published in the UK, from the master of comedy and pathos.
