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. * Literature/PorterhouseBlue Series:- ** ''Literature/PorterhouseBlue'' (1974) (Made into a TV mini-series, ''Series/PorterhouseBlue'', for ChannelFour) ** ''GrantchesterGrind'' (1995) * Literature/{{Wilt}} Series:- ** ''Literature/{{Wilt}}'' (1976) ** ''Literature/TheWiltAlternative'' (1979) ** ''Literature/WiltOnHigh'' (1984) ** ''Literature/WiltInNowhere'' (2004) ** ''Literature/WiltInTriplicate'' (omnibus) (1996) ** ''Literature/TheWiltInheritance'' (2010) * The Piemburg Police force novels:- ** ''Literature/RiotousAssembly'' (1971) ** ''Literature/IndecentExposure'' (1973) * Other Novels:- ** ''BlottOnTheLandscape'' (1975) (Also made into a TV mini-series for Creator/TheBBC) ** ''TheGreatPursuit'' (1977) ** ''TheThrowback'' (1978) ** ''AncestralVices'' (1980) ** ''VintageStuff'' (1982) ** ''TheMidden'' (1996) ** ''TheGropes'' (2009) * Collections:- ** Selected Works (1986) ** Tom Sharpe Library Pack (2001) * Short stories:- ** Stirring the Pot (1994) * The anthology Knights of Madness: Further Comic Tales of Fantasy (1998) features a story by TomSharpe.
