drive Dylan insane. There’s a sequence involving a kite-flyer in Along Came Dylan. Here are a couple of sentences from the relevant passage:

The kite flyer turned round. ‘Sorry,’ I said, the least I could say, considering I seemed to have not one, but two, out-of-control animals with me. Certain kite flyers, I discovered here, share an attitude with surf bums. He was a young man with skuzzy facial hair, one who just shrugged and smiled as if to say: Animals, they’re far out, aren’t they, dude.

    What I say is, if you really have to scare the animals and fishes and fly your kite, fly a kite that at least LOOKS like something.
    Even if it only looks like a kite. . .

  5. Stephen Foster says:

    Er, no. Are you suggesting some sort of therapy, like, if we had a kite that this might cool Dylan out?
