Imran Ahmad remembers his childhood in a series of vivid snapshots: outrage as deserved victory is snatched away from him in the Karachi Bonnie Baby contest- being tricked out of his collection of Tarzan bubblegum cards by a junior con artist- the heady taste of success in the Metropolitan Police schools quiz- joy at passing the entrance exam to the local grammar school- and shock at experiencing racist abuse from pupils, neighbors, and strangers. After moving to London from Karachi at age two, Imrans response to his strange new surroundings is to engage in an eternal quest to become the quintessential English gentleman: tie perfectly knotted, shirt pristinely ironed, hair neatly combed.

Like most boys, he also has a parallel obsession with cars and girls: he yearns to go driving off into the distance in a Jaguar XJS and encountering danger, adventure, and a vivacious brunette. This is a lighthearted and amusing look at the results of East meeting West inside the head of a precocious and headstrong boy.
