A Great Fool: okay Shrewd Idiot
Usually delivers within 2 weeks.
DescriptionPete Kennedy left his home in Brunlea in September 1969 to enter Teacher Training at St Luke's College Exeter. 'Luke's' had a number of young men from private public schools who like those from the grammar schools were usually the dropouts that hadn't got high enough grades at 'A' Level to get into a University. Teacher Training College offered 3 or 4 years delay in finding 'real' work. The men at predominantly male St Luke's mostly got on well together except when hunting females which was a popular pastime and dances were arranged (by PK for a year!) with nearby predominantly female colleges (so that both sexes could sate their needs "to the full.") A Great Fool tells the story of O'Dork as he moves like an eel (or heel) through 4 years at college. Starting out green behind the ears and a virgin he ends up a less green would be stud. Then he falls in love; first with a beautiful girl from Exeter then with his art, although Art says it came before the girl(s), it stuck around and he became deeply engrossed in it. Did the Art reward his efforts? Read the book (and look at the pictures) to find out. Then the young Kennedy meets an older self who infiltrates his book with often unkind observations about his behaviour and this develops into quite a heated dialogue.
