** The Perfect Gentleman by Imran Ahmad

The Perfect Gentleman: A Muslim Boy Meets the West┬áis the charming and funny memoir of a Pakistani boy who immigrated to the UK with his family in the early sixties and who recounts everyday life, his chance at a great education with a side of racism, both unthinking and sadly focused, and his struggles to fit in and to reconcile his parents’ expectations with his own desires.

The story seems to lost its energy once the narrator gets to university, but I enjoyed it very much.
