"If a little knowledge was a dangerous thing, a lot was lethal." -- Tom Sharpe
Tom Sharpe (Thomas Ridley Sharpe, born March 30, 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.

As of 2004, he was living in Llafranc, Catalonia, where he wrote Wilt in Nowhere. Despite living in Spain he has not learned either Catalan or Spanish. "I don't want to learn the language," he says. "I don't want to hear what the price of meat is."

Several of his works became best sellers.
