9780099474135: Wilt in Nowhere

In Tom Sharpe’s fourth uproarious Wilt novel, the indefatigable Henry Wilt embarks on the voyage of a lifetime — a cross-country trip through England, without map or compass, carrying little more than a backpack and the boots on his feet. A week later sees him drunk and unconscious in the back of an arsonist’s pickup truck. His trip goes even further downhill from there until he revives in the hospital, unable to figure out how he could possibly stand accused of arson, assassination and robbery.

Meanwhile, Eva has taken the quads to visit Uncle Wally and Aunt Joan in Tennessee. With the four girls leaving their customary trail of insanity and destruction wherever they go, not to mention a mob of embittered drug enforcement agents, Eva’s journey has also spiralled out of control.

Bitingly funny, Wilt in Nowhere pits Wilt against the intricacies of police persecution and the underbelly of Britain’s medical facilities, brilliantly exposing the farcical realities of small-town England and America.

Descripción Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Export ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. When his endlessly capricious wife Eva receives plane tickets for the family to visit Auntie Joan and Uncle Wally in Atlanta, Wilt knows only one thing - that nothing could entice him to fly three thousand miles over the water, and especially not two rotund Americans with more money than sense. What better way to escape and find equilibrium then to embark on a walking tour? Just Wilt, the countryside, and an ill-judged bottle of whiskey. Meanwhile, Eva finds her plans to inherit Joan and Wally s fortune slipping away faster than her sanity, thanks to a combination of sinister teenage quadruplets with foul mouths, and her unexpected role as lead suspect in a drug-trafficking plot. Outrageous, darkly comic, and packed with calamity on top of calamity, Tom Sharpe s latest episode of Wilt s misadventures is a razor-sharp farce that will delight fans both old and new.

Descripción Arrow Books. Taschenbuch. Estado de conservación: Neu. Neuware - Henry Wilt hat es nicht leicht: Seine Lehrerkollegen an der Schule rauben ihm den letzten Nerv, seine vier heftig pubertierenden Töchter tanzen ihm auf der Nase herum, und dann kommt seine Frau Eva auch noch auf die Idee, der verhassten Verwandtschaft in Amerika einen Besuch abzustatten. Das ist einfach zuviel auf einmal, und so ist Henry wild entschlossen, all diesen Zumutungen ein Ende zu bereiten. Dank einer perfiden List gelingt es ihm tatsächlich, seine Sippe in ein Flugzeug zu verfrachten und sie alleine auf die Reise zu schicken. Zutiefst beglückt über diese unverhoffte Freiheit schmiedet Henry Pläne - und entschließt sich, eine mehrtägige Wanderung durch das idyllische ländliche England zu unternehmen. Doch was als vergnüglicher Ausflug beginnt, entpuppt sich unversehens zu einem turbulenten Abenteuer, das Henry in die nicht immer nur feinen Kreise der englischen Provinz katapultiert. When his endlessly capricious wife Eva receives plane tickets for the family to visit Auntie Joan and Uncle Wally in Atlanta, Wilt knows only one thing - that nothing could entice him to fly three thousand miles over the water, and especially not two rotund Americans with more money than sense. What better way to escape and find equilibrium then to embark on a walking tour Just Wilt, the countryside, and an ill-judged bottle of whiskey. Meanwhile, Eva finds her plans to inherit Joan and Wally's fortune slipping away faster than her sanity, thanks to a combination of sinister teenage quadruplets with foul mouths, and her unexpected role as lead suspect in a drug-trafficking plot.
