SUMMARY
Süddeutsche Zeitung Collection of 20 Favorite Humorous Novels:
The Throwback is a satirical novel written in 1978.

The plot is based around the ancient Flawse family, landed gentry based at the falling-down Flawse Hall. The single remaining family member is a cantankerous octenegarian named Edwin Tyndale Flawse. His illegitimate grandson Lockhart (aka "the Bastard") combines sexual and educational innocence with an alarming propensity for violence when he or his wife is threatened.

This is number 16 out of 20 books edited by Süddeutsche Zeitung Bibliothek.

My cover art shows a gun emitting a wooden flag of Great Britain. Stylewise, I used a thin ink pen and some gray to add depth to the image.

20 Lieblingsbücher ausgewählt von der Feuilletonredaktion der Süddeutschen Zeitung

Humor hat viele Facetten. Die Süddeutsche Zeitung Bibliothek des Humors zeigt den ganzen Reigen literarischen Humors – skurril, satirisch, makaber, hintergründig, böse, ironisch, oder einfach lustig.

Eine junge Frau zieht nach New York, um sich dort als Künstlerin zu versuchen, landet jedoch als Kellnerin in einem außergewöhnlichen Restaurant. Es liegt gegenüber dem New Yorker UNO-Gebäude und gehört einem Juden und einem Araber. Eine explosive Mischung – und so dauert es nicht lange, bis die ersten Bombendrohungen eingehen. Salomes siebter Schleier ist ein kurzweiliger Roman, der die politischen Konflikte unserer Zeit humorvoll aufgreift.

Edited by Süddeutsche Zeitung, Germany's Largest Newspaper: The 20 Funniest Books Ever

The Throwback is a satirical novel written by Tom Sharpe in 1978. The plot is based around the ancient Flawse family, landed gentry based at the falling-down Flawse Hall, in the wilds of Northumberland, just south of the Anglo-Scottish border. The single remaining family member is a cantankerous octenegarian named Edwin Tyndale Flawse. His illegitimate grandson Lockhart (aka "the Bastard") combines sexual and educational innocence with an alarming propensity for violence when he or his wife is threatened. The old man was born in the late 19th century, and his main aim in the very autumn years of his life is to find the father of his bastard grandchild and flog him within an inch of his life.

 

Tom Sharpe, The Throwback

Tom Sharpe wurde 1928 in England geboren, studierte in Cambridge, lernte als Buchhalter, Sozialarbeiter und Fotograf Südafrika kennen, bis er ausgewiesen wurde. Anschließend unterrichtete er als Hilfslehrer an einer Berufsschule in Cambridge, bis ihm der Erfolg seiner Bücher die Freiheit schenkte, mit Frau und drei Töchtern als Schriftsteller zu leben.

Tom Sharpe (*1928) is an English satirical author, best known for his Wilt series of novels. Sharpe was born in London and moved to South Africa in 1951, where he worked as a social worker and a teacher, before being deported for sedition in 1961. His time in South Africa inspired the novels Riotous Assembly and Indecent Exposure, in which he mocks the apartheid regime. Upon returning to England, he was a history lecturer at the Cambridge College of Arts and Technology, which inspired his Wilt series in which he derides popular English culture. Several of his works became best sellers.

Alle 20 Bände erscheinen als Hardcover mit Schutzumschlag und Lesebändchen. EUR 8,90 pro Band oder EUR 138,- für die Gesamtreihe.
