Sarah Broadhurst's view...

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.
Similar this month: Anthony Horowitz, Stephen Clarke.

If you like Tom Sharpe you might also like to read books by George Macdonald Fraser, Lissa Evans and Marina Lewycka.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Wilt In Nowhere by Tom Sharpe

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.

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

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
