BBC News – Tom Sharpe, Porterhouse Blue novelist, dies aged 85

Sad news and a very talented author. Introduced to his books by a maths teacher at school!
Highly recommend ‘The Throwback’, ‘Ancestral Vices’ or the earlier Wilt novels. Avoid his recent books though as sadly they are not a patch on his earlier books.
