Meet Jarvis Ham, lift-cadger, diary-keeper, Princess Di-lover, celeb chaser, secret alcoholic, relentless seeker of fame – and general all-round irritant. But the thing about Jarvis – he’s harmless, and deep down, you know he’s got a heart of gold. Hasn’t he?
As his friend watches Jarvis fall helplessly in love, strive for fame through charity singles and reality TV auditions, and cause a paedophile alert at the local swimming baths, he wonders how his life would have been if he had never met Jarvis Ham. 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.
