The Wilt Inheritance : (Wilt Series 5) Paperback
by Tom Sharpe
Part of the Wilt series
Stuck in a job he doesn't want - but can't afford to lose - as nominal Head of the Communications Department at Fenland University, Wilt is still subject to the whims of The Powers That Be, both in and outside of work.
The demands of his snobbish wife Eva, and the stupendous school fees of his despicable quadruplet daughters, cause him the biggest headaches... apart from the hangovers, that is. When Eva signs him up for a summer job, teaching the gun-toting idiot son of a lusty local aristocrat, Wilt is not amused.
But, as circumstances unravel and the summer goes on, Wilt sees that the situation could be put to his financial advantage, as well as giving Eva some headaches of her own.
With Tom Sharpe's famous dark humour in full evidence, and an explosive plot which takes its readers to places they never realised they wanted to visit, The Wilt Inheritance is another instant classic from the British master of farce.

Review by planetmut
Jesus, what happened to Tom Sharpe? His books used to be side-splittingly funny but The Wilt Inheritance is bloody awful. Full of hateful characters who aren't funny, contrived situations that aren't funny and a resolution the author seems to have pulled out of his arse at the last minute. Sharpe should have stopped after The Great Pursuit as he's obviously lost it.
