It is not so much that Colin's adult education class is a riot - although lippy Jack and snide Nicola do their best to make it so, and even that nice, demure, octogenarian Miss Tedley has been known to lend a hand - it is more that Colin's own mind is a riot of conflicting thoughts around the luscious Amanda, life, school politics, literature and the rules of English usage, grammar and syntax. And Colin does have an unfortunate name and a tendency to land himself in more trouble than he is already in or, at times, under, as the world comes crashing down on him.
Will he ever prepare a class, get the better of arch-enemies Simon and Dolores, or seduce Amanda into paying any attention to him whatsoever? And will he ever define 'dayrealing'? Ah, that. Yes, dayrealing is what this Colin does best.
