Buddha of Suburbia

The Buddha of Suburbia - Hanif Kureishi I'm not a big fan of coming-of-age novels more generally, but I enjoyed this one more than I expected. Very funny and very English, and at the same time often absolutely insane. The prose could be a bit smoother or more polished in places, and the second half kind of sizzles out - Kureishi feels much better portraying suburban life than he is the misadventures of young acting stars - but overall it works.
