About this product
- DescriptionAnthony Sharp's book is funny, if politically 'incorrect'. The story might well have been the nightmare of more than one honest Englishman. A glimpse of the future, inverted prejudices and a struggle for power.
- Author BiographyAnthony Sharp was educated at his local grammar school in London, and went up to Oxford as the Organ Scholar of Lincoln College, sharing tutorials with his contemporary and fellow Londoner, Dudley Moore, who had won The Organ Scholarship at Magdalen College. While Dudley's career blossomed into great achievements, fame and fortune, Anthony's struggled for survival in a whirlpool of disappointment and self-inflicted disasters. There were a few compensations in the form of TV appearances and concert hall recitals on London's South Bank. Yet his unhappy stint as University Organist back at Oxford could hardly compare with the depravities of London night clubs where, from the piano stool, he could survey the antics of 'grown' men and women. Little wonder, then, that he should one day enjoy writing humorous, highly individual paperbacks, and to hell with it all. His first novel, The Guv'nor', was published by Regency Press in London. There followed 'The House of Baghdad' and 'Lie Back & Think of England', both published by Author House, USA. Then came 'NOW OR NEVER', also published by Author House and a sequel to 'The Guv'nor', involving not only Prince Charles but also President Barack Obama, Lewis Hamilton and Osama Bin Laden, a book perhaps to really set the cat amongst those proverbial pigeons. But then, Anthony Sharp is hardly an author for readers seeking a non-challenging comfort zone.
