Synopsis

Brrm! Brrm! by Clive James is the hilarious story of Japanese high-flyer and would-be-diplomat Akira Suzuki who is sent to London for the first time to learn about a more cosmopolitan lifestyle but instead manages to make headlines for all the wrong reasons much to the embarrassment of the Japanese embassy.

In the media

A hilarious account of how English people and customs appear to someone brought up in the orderliness of Japan . . . presented with wit and enjoyment
Times
James is one of those blessed people who are close to being infallibly funny; whose books can be approached in full, sublime confidence that here will be found something on every page to make you laugh
Sunday Telegraph
Brrm! Brrm! is funny, clever and sometimes as delicate and tender as the poetry of its hero, Akira Suzuki . . . ferocious originality . . . brilliant characterization
