"'Britain's leading practitioner of black humour' - Punch; 'Tom Sharpe serves up the loudest laughs in literary comedy... He is the great post-Waugh humorist, the Wodehouse who dares plunge into the bottomless vulgarity and hysteria of our times, and a rattling good companion on a train journey.' - Mail on Sunday; 'The funniest novelist writing today' - Times; 'The best of British farce-masters is back' - Mail on Sunday"Reseña del editor:
Henry Wilt is back! In a major publishing event, one of Britain's finest living writers returns with his greatest creation. Brilliantly written and bitingly funny, Tom Sharpe's indefatigable hero is pitted against the vices of an aristocratic pervert, the merciless greed of a politician's wife and the seedy underbelly of Britain's medical facilities, deftly exposing the farcical realities of small-town England and America. The author, Tom Sharpe was born in 1928 and educated at Lancing College and Pembroke College, Cambridge. He did his National Service in the Marines before going to South Africa in 1951, where he did social work before teaching in Natal. He had a photographic studio in Pietermaritzburg from 1957 until 1961. From 1963 to 1972 he was a lecturer in History at the Cambridge College of Arts and Technology. In 1986 he was awarded the XXXIII-me Grand Prix de l'Humour Noir Xavier Forneret. He divides his time between Cambridge and Spain.
