Driving Jarvis Ham is a brilliantly witty story of unconventional, unwavering, and regularly exasperating friendship.
Meet Jarvis Ham: tea-room assistant, diarist, lift-cadger, Princess Di fan, secret alcoholic, and relentless seeker of fame. Jarvis may be an all-round irritant, but he's harmless, and deep down, you know, he's got a heart of gold. Hasn't he?
As his oldest (and only) friend reflects on his life with Jarvis Ham - infatuations, questionable hairstyles, home-made charity singles, reality TV auditions, paedophile alerts at the local swimming baths - he wonders what it would have been like if they had never met. But what are you going to do? He's a mate.
Driving Jarvis Ham is a novel for anyone who has ever found themselves looking across at a childhood friend, and wondering why they still know them.

"Part Roald Dahl, part Spike Milligan, part (actually, a lot) smutty schoolboy, which suggest that even in a dull world of dog-t**d strewn alleys you can dare to dream. If some TV company ever bought the rights and made a sitcom out of it, we'd have the natural successor to Spaced." (SFX)
