Synopsis Riotous Assembly is Tom Sharpe's outrageously funny first novel. Set in modern South Africa, it chronicles the bizarre series of events following a "crime passionel" which involves not only the church and police but also rubber fetishists and transvestites. As with all of his popular best-sellers, this novel displays all of Sharpe's impeccable comic timing and unerring choice of satirical targets.
Wilt is the story of bored and unhappy Henry Wilt, humble Polytechnic lecturer of Eng. Lit. to unreceptive apprentice bricklayers and plumbers. Saddled with a gargantuan but feather-brained wife, he finds himself indulging more and more in fantasies of murder. So naturally, when his wife disappears one day, Henry becomes the man "helping police with their enquiries" ...
