our protagonist spends most of this epic tale "in corporeal desuetude",
i.e. as a bodyless head. The Odyssey pursues him from procreation, via
schooldays and an Apprenticeship In The University Of Life (i.e.
about spending Daddy's money), to his ultimate vocation as 'The English
Assassin', pith helmet-wearing conqueror of something-or-other and
spy in a world of wickedness and intrepidity. During a romantic
interlude, he is decapitated in flagrante delicto and his dismembered
body is scattered to the four winds. Bart's trusty, youthful and - lets
face it - female sidekick Snowy quests though multiple realities, meets
her doppelganger and after several gender-swaps achieves an unexpected
denouement to the tale. Wildly funny, wildly unlikely and unique in its
combination of intertwining language and image. Original, signed
