It's crisis time again at Porterhouse. Skullion is showing signs of frailty and the tricky task of appointing a new Master has to begin once more. Meanwhile, the college's monstrous debts refuse to go away and a sinister American seems determined to make a film on the premises.

A typical Sharpe: Hilarious, full of quirky characters and funny situations, but not without depth and a certain philosophical quality.

Quotable Quotations
*They were young and there was no point in hurting them so early. Life would do that. (p. 470)
* The Japanese were an island people, were in fact what the British had been, at once hard-working and violent and ruthlessly efficient. They were inventive, and their engineering was superb. They learnt from their mistakes, and they persevered. They were immensely rich, they believed in discipline and the need for authority, and they understood the vital importance of ritual and ceremony in preserving the decencies of life. Above all, they had the virtues of courtesy and courage. They did their duty to the death. For the first time in his life the Dean looked without shrinking into the face of the inconceivable and was undismayed. He would work for the appointment of a Japanese Master of Porterhouse. And for him.
     It would be an honour. (p. 489)

Von Tom Sharpe wollte ich schon immer etwas lesen.
Gut für die Challenge 2020 von Efell als "Männerbuch", denn auf dem Cover sind 5 skurrile Exemplare davon zu sehen.
