Tom Sharpe, who has died aged 85, did not start writing comic novels until 1971 when he was 43, but once he got going he gained a large readership. Wilt in Nowhere is the fourth in the series of novels about hapless polytechnic lecturer Henry Wilt, his wife Eva, and their incorrigible four little girls, now aged 14, at convent school and bubbling over with an unhealthy interest in all things sexual. Eva receives an invitation for her and the girls to go visit her Aunt Joanie who lives in the town of Wilma, Tennessee. On the flight over to America, a nice man who introduces himself as Sol Campito stealthily stashes a capsule in Eva’s hand luggage. It contains a super-powerful and super-addictive new narcotic manufactured in Eastern Europe. The US Drug Enforcement Agency search Sol. But he is clean. Their suspicions shift to the fat woman and four unruly kids who were sitting next to him on the plane… And what about Wilt himself? Well, he knew that nothing could entice him to fly three thousand miles over the water, and especially not two rotund Americans with more money than sense. So, our beloved hero had successfully managed to extricate himself from the invitation and from going to America at all, by pretending he’d been tasked with mugging up revolutionary communist movements in order to teach a new course on it at the Technical College - something they both know would be a red rag to Uncle Wally’s Republican beliefs… Enjoy free online English audiobook “Wilt in Nowhere”, a novel by Tom Sharpe.
