About this book

Campaign to include bus-side advertising, outdoor posters and London Underground. 85,000 sold in hardback. "A terrific advance on her excellent "White Teeth". A brilliant comedy with a tantalising throb of mystic philosophy underneath" Philip Hensher.
Following one Alex-Li Tandem - a twenty-something, Chinese-Jewish autograph dealer turned on by sex, drugs and organised religion. Exposing our misconceptions about our idols - about ourselves, this title delivers a tale about who we are and what we really want to be.
