Driving Jarvis Ham by Jim Bob

Jim Bob (aka James Neil Morrison of Carter U.S.M.) is an author! Who knew?  

Driving Jarvis Ham is Jim Bob's second novel, published by The Friday Project last year. Reckon I'll definitely be checking this out from the local library soon (assuming they have it).

 From the publisher:
A brilliantly witty story of unconventional, unwavering, and regularly exasperating friendship.

Meet Jarvis Ham: tea-room assistant, diarist, lift-cadger, Princess Di fan, secret alcoholic, and relentless seeker of fame. Jarvis may be an all-round irritant, but he’s harmless, and deep down, you know, he’s got a heart of gold. Hasn’t he?

As his oldest (and only) friend reflects on his life with Jarvis Ham – infatuations, questionable hairstyles, home-made charity singles, reality TV auditions, paedophile alerts at the local swimming baths – he wonders what it would have been like if they had never met. But what are you going to do? He’s a mate. DRIVING JARVIS HAM is a novel for anyone who has ever found themself looking across at a childhood friend, and wondering why they still know them.
