Paperback with card cover, VGC.
Tony White's remarkable new novel breathes dramatic life into an unlikely urban love triangle. A story of love, jealousy and murder, Foxy-T captures the energy, diversity and comedy of inner city life with streetwise verve and linguistic gusto.Foxy-T and Ruji-Babes run the E-Z Call Telephone and Internet in the heart of Bangladeshi East London. They've been best friends since school and live together above the shop, but Ruji-Babes' uncle runs things round Cannon Street Road so no one's asking too many questions. 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 candle-light - 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, the streets and his spars, Zafar's presence rapidly changes the way things work around the E-Z Call, 'cause two's company three's a crowd init'.'Incredibly sustained, amazingly convincing - out of a voice familiar to most only as a pisstake Tony White has constructed a generous, tolerant and moving book. At the core of the dazzling wordplay and the unique literary experience of this novel is a big, wide heart, always sweetly beating.' Niall Griffiths
