Blott on the Landscape

“ROLLICKING” TOM-SHARPERY with DAVID “POIROT” SUCHET AND GERALDINE “CROWN” JAMES. Motorway protests, loins, trying to shag dreary government inspector SIMON CADELL and the unforgettable sight of JULIA “FRESH FIELDS” MACKENSIE dressed as a pantomime cat performing bondage on a naked GEORGE COLE.

    I’ve tried several times over the years to get into Tom Sharpe’s novels, after various people have told me how funny they are and what a brilliant comic author he was, but I always end up getting frustrated, bored, or both, and giving up after a few chapters. I’ve no doubt they’re great, but they’re just not for me – there’s a certain strain of ‘very British’ eccentric palaver (or ‘inspired dottiness,’ if you prefer) that just leaves me cold. See also Alan Ayckbourn.
