A voyage round John Mortimer

Product description

Novelist, playwright and barrister Sir John Mortimer has led an extraordinarily rich and darling life, privately and professionally, much of it in the public eye.

A Voyage Around John Mortimer traces Mortimer's legal and literary career, from his first attempts at writting novels and plays, and the early help he offered his barrister father, through his great triumphs in the courts to the creation of Horace Rumpole, one of the most popular characters in contempory fiction and television. Mortimer's personal life includeing his marriages to Penelope Mortimer and Penelope II, and his many affairs - is a colourful as any fiction he's written.
