About Book

Best friends and flatmates Foxy-T and Ruji-Babes run the E-Z Call Telephone and Internet shop in the heart of Bangladeshi East London. It's a twelve-hour day running the E-Z Call and Foxy-T and Ruji-Babes don't get out much, but they have each other and eat their take-outs by candlelight . . .

And all seems cool until Zafar Iqbal turns up on their doorstep looking for his grandad. Fresh from Feltham Young Offenders Centre and with a taste for the weed, Zafar's presence rapidly upsets the balance at the E-Z Call . . .

'One of the best London novels you'll ever get to read.' Toby Litt, Sunday Herald
