9780099466529: Indecent Exposure

In Piemburgem, the deceptively peaceful-looking capital of Zululand, Kommandant van Heerden, Konstabel Els and Luitenant Verkramp continue to terrorise true Englishman and even truer Zulus in their relentless search for a perfect South Africa.

Kommandant van Heerden, that great Anglophile, gropes his way towards attaining true 'Englishness' in the company of the eccentric Dornford Yates Club. But Luitenant Verkramp, whose hatred of all things English is surpassed only by his fear of sex, sets in motion an experiment in mass chastity (with the help of a lady psychiatrist), which has remarkable and quite unforeseen results.

Review:

"Explosively funny, fiendishly inventive" ( Sunday Times)

"Splendidly funny" ( New Statesman)

"What clinches the novel's success is Mr Sharpe's brilliant comic style. His phrasing, his timing, and his extraordinarily deft handling of the minutiae of comic incidents make for real hilarity" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Britain's leading practitioner of black humour" ( Punch)

From the Publisher:

Tom Sharpe's second South African novel and a brilliant follow-up to Riotous Assembly

Book Description Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Random House UK | A hilarious dose of British farce from Tom Sharpe, the bestselling author of Wilt and Porterhouse Blue . | Heldengedenktag in Piemburg, der kleinen Hauptstadt von Zululand: Alle Jahre wieder nutzen Briten und Buren, Zulus explizit ausgeschlossen, die Gelegenheit, die Gegenwart zu vergessen und alte Hassgefühle aufleben zu lassen. Kommandant van Heerden, Piemburger Polizeichef, steckt in einer Zwickmühle. Einerseits wird von ihm als echtem Afrikaander eine Rede auf der Kundgebung der Nationalistischen Partei zum Thema Heldentum erwartet, als hoher Funktionär muss er sich aber auch im Settlers Park sehen lassen, wo die Söhne Englands feiern. Nachdem er auf beiden Veranstaltungen seinen Verpflichtungen nachgekommen ist, verabschiedet van Heerden sich in den wohlverdienten Kurzurlaub, um sich ungestört seinen anglophilen Neigungen hinzugeben und mit der britischen Möchtegern-Upper-Class auf Golfplätzen zu verlustieren. Sein Stellvertreter Luitenant Verkramp, Leiter der Sicherheitsabteilung, wittert seine große Chance. Verkramp hofft endlich vom bloßen Stellvertreter aufzusteigen zu einer echten Autoritätsperson, was seinen Fähigkeiten sowieso viel angemessener wäre. Seine Mission: Angewiesen vom Staatssicherheitsministerium BOSS, will er gegen Rassenmischung zwischen Polizeibeamten und Bantufrauen vorgehen, und überhaupt allen Staatsfeinden und Kommunisten endgültig den Garaus machen. Seine Methoden: Strategisch wichtige Einrichtungen der Stadt in die Luft jagen und ausgesuchte Bürger der Stadt einbuchten. Unterstützt und abgelenkt wird er von der sexsüchtigen Psychiaterin Dr. von Blimenstein, Schuhgröße 47, die seine sexuellen Wunschvorstellungen Wirklichkeit werden lässt. Ihre Therapie zur Verhinderung der ungewünschten Liaisons trägt allerdings bloß dazu bei, dass die Polizeibeamten homosexuelle Seiten entwickeln. Zur Eindämmung der Verkrampschen Paranoia und zur apokalyptischen Klimax kommt es erst nach der Rückkehr van Heerdens. Deutlichstes Zeichen der Gesundung Verkramps: Er löst die Verlobung mit Frau Dr. von Blimenstein. Van Heerden stellt die alte Ordnung wieder her, schafft es, sich mit seinen Vorgesetzten wieder gut zu stellen und pflegt die strategische Allianz mit der Ärztin der ganz normale Wahnsinn hat Piemburg wieder. In Piemburgem, the deceptively peaceful-looking capital of Zululand, Kommandant van Heerden, Konstabel Els and Luitenant Verkramp continue to terrorise true Englishman and even truer Zulus in their relentless search for a perfect South Africa.Kommandant van Heerden, that great Anglophile, gropes his way towards attaining true 'Englishness' in the company of the eccentric Dornford Yates Club. But Luitenant Verkramp, whose hatred of all things English is surpassed only by his fear of sex, sets in motion an experiment in mass chastity (with the help of a lady psychiatrist), which has remarkable and quite unforeseen results. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 235 gr | 198x130x19 mm | 352 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780099466529
