The Unbearable Dreamworld of Champa the Driver Paperback
Sex, Lies, and Rocky Roads...Life is simple for Champa.
He has a good job as a chauffeur in his hometown of Lhasa, and if his Chinese boss Plum is a little domineering, well, he can understand that - she's a serious art-collector after all. And he does get to drive her huge Toyota. When he starts to sleep with his boss as well as drive her around, life becomes a whole lot more complicated.
But not in a bad way. Suddenly Champa's sex life is beyond his wildest dreams.
But then Plum brings home a Tara statue - a statue that shines with exquisite feminine beauty - and suddenly life is not simple at all, as Champa finds himself on the long road to Beijing in search of its inspiration...The Unbearable Dreamworld of Champa The Driver is a rollicking road novel brim-ful of sensuality and danger.
Underlying the optimism and humour of its hero is a darker picture of racism and rough justice in modern Beijing.
