It's Harrow in the 1990s, and Amit, Anand and Nishant are stuck. Their peers think they're a bunch of try-hard 'darkies', acting street and pretending to be cool, while their community thinks they're rich toffs, a long way from the 'real' Asians in Southall. So, to keep it real, they form legendary hip-hop band 'Coconut Unlimited'. Pity they can't rap. From struggling to find records in the suburbs and rehearsing on rubbish equipment, to evading the clutches of disapproving parents and real life drug-dealing gangsters, Coconut Unlimited documents every teenage boy's dream and the motivations behind it: being in a band to look pretty cool - oh, and get girls...

Review:

'A unique, bittersweet, tragi-geek celebration of beats, rhymes and growing up.' - Riz Ahmed AKA Riz MC, star of Four Lions 'Coconut Unlimited is an overdue take on the neglected nexus between private school and Public Enemy. A spry, funny writer, Nikesh Shukla has a terrifying eye for the awkwardness of adolescence but, fortunately, spares his reader too much fist-eating embarrassment through the charm of his characters and the heart of his prose.' - Patrick Neate, author of Jerusalem and Twelve Bar Blues 'Charming, funny and connects to the wannabe gangster in all of us.' - Joe Dunthorne, author of Submarine 'Coconut Unlimited is dope. A Brit-Asian Rotters' Club that is both a loving homage to hip-hop and a fresh take on the English comic novel. Carry On Rapping...' - Niven Govinden, author of Graffiti My Soul 'Laugh out loud and refreshingly honest. The hip-hop soundtrack thumps like a bassline from beginning to end.' - Anita Rani, presenter and journalist 'Like Goodness Gracious Me being channelled by Flava Flav...' - Bobby Friction, DJ and broadcaster 'An absolute killer of a book that perfectly captures the suburban quest for Rap Stardom. Grab your crotch and bust a lyric into your hairbrush handle...' - Charlie Dark, writer, producer and DJ
