First edition ISBN 9780670915507 Journalist, novelist, playwright, barrister, John Mortimer (1923-2009) led a long and extraordinarily rich life, and was one of the great national figures of our time. He is fondly remembered as the creator of Rumpole of the Bailey, but his legal achievements were also significant, particularly as an ardent defender of freedom of speech. As official biographer, Valerie Grove had full access to the man himself and his family and friends to create this intimate picture of a much-loved character. His own writings, from the play A Voyage Round My Father to the memoirs Clinging to the Wreckage and Murderers and Other Friends, have given his many fans plenty of insights. But now for the first time a biographer has had full access to Mortimer, his circle of friends and colleagues, and their diaries and letters. The result is a riveting account of the life of one of the great figures of our time. A Voyage Round John Mortimer is revealing of many aspects of Mortimer's legal and literary career, from his first attempts at writing novels and the early help he offered his barrister father through to the great triumphs of Rumpole and the Oz trial.
