LoveReading View on Wilt In Nowhere

Do you know it’s been 20 years since we had a Wilt novel and I honestly thought we’d never have another. It has also been eight years since we had a new Tom Sharpe and now he has really come up trumps. Madcap, farcical, over-the-top and un-PC, it really is the greatest of fun, just what you need on a rainy day.

Comparison: P G Wodehouse, David Lodge, Joseph Connolly.

Wilt In Nowhere Synopsis

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.

Wilt In Nowhere Press Reviews

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
