Tom Sharpe (1928-2013) was a Cambridge-educated British author of comic {{Farce}} novels. He is perhaps best known for his Literature/{{Wilt}} series of comic novels, but the Piemburg farces, which are drawn from his time living and working in [[TheApartheidEra apartheid South Africa]], are also worth a honorable mention. (He was deported from South Africa for subversion and not taking apartheid seriously). He had been described as England's funniest living writer, but in a country also boasting Sir Terry Pratchett, Tom Holt and Robert Rankin, that was perhaps open to debate.
