The Perfect Gentleman: A Muslim Boy Meets the West : At the age of one, Imran Ahmad and his family emigrated to England, where he grew up to become a self-proclaimed "good boy" - an obedient son, an excellent student, and a respectful adherent to his faith. Fully embracing his new culture, he strove to become the quintessential English gentleman, taking to heart the founding principles of his new culture - truth, justice, equality, fair play . . . and a passion for the Jaguar XJS.
When a fellow schoolboy tries to convert him, Ahmad sets off on a life-long quest to assure himself that his religious choice is the right one. Seeking guidance from his faith for such personal experiences as racism, bigotry, the profligate behavior of his peers, and the bewildering signals of the opposite sex makes for thoughtful - and downright delightful - reading.
With a unique style and unflinching honesty, THE PERFECT GENTLEMAN addresses serious issues in an extraordinarily light way, and will leave readers both thinking deeply and laughing out loud.
