Product description


Alexei Sayle's Great Bus Journeys of the World - a howlingly funny miscellany with surprisingly little to do with buses - first appeared as a regular column in Time Out. Now this reissue brings to light once again the comic gifts and cartooning talents of the professional fat bloke. In a startling combination of anarchic humour, trenchant philosophy and deep political analysis, he explores the depths of his minefield psyche through such eccentric devices as an ode to Doris Lessing, tutorials on writing jokes, and a safety notice which no-one who has ever made a purchase from the Nagasaki Futon Company can afford to miss. This is a startling tour of an endlessly inventive imagination - and a boon to eel-fanciers everywhere.
