I have followed the "Bishop Bonkers" comics on the internet and I feel that this book illuminates an essential truth about "Bonkers" (nee Manchester) and Farrant. It is almost as if each needs the other to act as their implacable opponent; the yin of Manchester and the yang of Farrant, or something rather more complex. I forget who it was who, writing about the James Bond films, advanced the theory that Bond and the villain are actually two sides of the same character - the light and the darkness. With the Farrant/Manchester situation each partner moves as if in a dance; one steps forward, the other back; reverse and round again. Both parties claim to want reconciliation, but in reality the dance will not let them go. Those interested in a humourous treatment of the dance may find this book rewarding in its own way.
