Synopses & Reviews


"Maybe something was lost in the translation. Tom Sharpe is a popular British novelist, and it is easy to see why. His antihero, Henry Wilt, is a much-put-upon, decent chap whose wife slips him an aphrodisiac that causes him more than a little grief; his colleagues at a miserable technical school scheme to lead him to the gallows; and the U.S.Air Force has it in for him. It might add up to something, but it does not. A few funny lines do not make a comic novel, and this one just has nothing going for it." Reviewed by Robert Jackson, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
