9780099435532: Ancestral Vices

Tom Sharpe is in top form- outrageously funny- Left-wing academics, right-wing capitalists, true-blue country gentry, workers, peasants, police and lawyers - all take custard pies full in the face in this boisterous knockabout farce' The Listener. 'A novelist who has broken out of the pack, established a wholly distinctive style- such a keen eye for the ridiculous and marvellous ability to puncture it' Scotsman. 'An immense gift for social satire- the action is unflagging' Daily Telegraph. 'There's almost no one funnier' Observer.
