Large Print Edition Clifford Hearn at his hilarious best as he roams through a farcical story of a bishop, a comedian, a professor, a brothel, a prison and eels. A master piece. It is really dedicated to comedians as they make us laugh at ourselves and cry in agony at our failings. A laugh out loud book and if you like Wodehouse you will love Hearn. He is probably the funniest author alive today and like all standup comedians knows the exact words to make us laugh and cry. ONE WARNING: Do not read this book in a public place unless you don't mind embarrassment. Comedians make us laugh when we need to laugh, and make us cry when we need to cry. They give us so much, but we give them so little in return and often they die alone and lonely. They tell us that they merely want to make us laugh at ourselves and cry at our own follies. So a fitting tribute to them is a farce in which we laugh and cry at a set of people who, in some aspects, very closely resemble ourselves. The title tells us something about the book but should perhaps have included 'The Judge' who comes to a very sticky end as a puddle on a pavement and of course WOW-LASSIE (Women of the World League Against Sex and Sexism In Entertainment) which battles sexism in TV shows.
