Publisher 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
