So first because he's the one I've read longest - Tom Sharpe. Too sharp sometimes - I was actually physically nauseated by The Throwback (condoms, scouring powder and cheesegraters.... ) - but the South African novels and of course the Henry Wilt series are brilliant books that satirise some of the truly nastier social mores of modern times.
Has he written anything since "The Midden"? That's the last book of his I've seen in the U.S., and that was ages ago. I wish he were more prolific.
