Inhaltsangabe zu „Wilt, Engl. ed.“ von Tom Sharpe

Henry Wilt, tied to a daft job and a domineering wife, has just been passed over for promotion yet again. Ahead of him at the Polytechnic stretch years of trying to thump literature into the heads of plasterers, joiners, butchers and the like. And things are no better at home where his massive wife, Eva, is given to boundless and unpredictable fits of enthusiasm - for transcendental meditation, yoga or the trampoline. But if Wilt can do nothing about his job, he realises he can do something about his wife - and as each day passes, his fantasies grow more murderous and more real. (Quelle:'E-Buch Text/26.05.2011')

    A great, funny, witty story about Henry Wilt, a completely unremarkable person, who accidentally becomes the center of attention - especially of the police. A great crime thriller farce, probably the best I have ever read within this genre. A MUST!!!!!! Excerpt: Wilt looked round the garden. In one corner a man in a chef´s hat and a jockstrap was cooking, was BURNING sausages over a charcoal grill. In another corner a dozen people were lying in a circle listening to the Watergate tapes. There was a sprinkling of couples talking earnestly and a number of indivuduals standing by themselves looking supercilious and remote. Wilt recognized himself among them and selected the least attractive girl on the theory that he might just as well jump in the deep and and get it over with. He´d end up with her anyway. "Hi," he said (...). The girl looked at him blankly and moved away. "Charming," said Wilt, and finished his drink. Ten minutes and two drinks later he was discussing Rapid Reading with a small round man who seemed deeply interested in the subject.
