The third title in Nigel William's hilarious Wimbledon trilogy, all re-issued with eye-catching covers.
Robert Wilson is an aimless, chronically untruthful young Englishman who has passed himself off as a Muslim, in order to secure a job at the newly established Wimbledon Independent Islamic Boys' Day School. East of Wimbledon is the hilarious story of Mr Wilson's decline and fall, as he demonstrates the failure of a post-colonial Briton to understand another great imperial culture that has absolutely no need of him.
