The Bear Necessities

In that obsessive way that a song gets into your psyche, The Television Personalities’ ‘Honey For The Bears’ intrigued me so much that I picked up the book by Anthony Burgess to see if it was the inspiration in typical Dan Treacy style. Sadly it was in title alone as the angst-ridden tune and swinging ‘60s feel – c’mon Honey is right up there with Candy – had little to do with a tale about the sexual exploits of a British antique dealer in Russia or did it?
