About the Author:

John Mortimer is a playwright, novelist, and former practicing barrister who has written many film scripts as well as stage, radio, and television plays, the Rumpole plays, for which he received the British Academy Writer of the Year Award, and the adaptation of Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited. He is the author of twelve collections of Rumpole stories and three acclaimed volumes of autobiography.

From AudioFile:

The unflappable, crafty, and eloquent barrister, Rumpole, winds his eccentric way through hilarious courtroom dramas. Horace Rumpole, renowned for his penetrating cross-examination skills and familiarity with the criminal class and their parlance, turns on a tuppence when the situation calls for it, triumphing over steely-eyed, glacially cold judges and cunning, condescending prosecutors. These stories will make you laugh, as Rumpole's trenchant wit and self-deprecating mien make for great comedy. The ongoing subtext with his wife, "She Who Must Be Obeyed," supplies further comedic value. And of course, Bill Wallis's amazing voice-acting talents are not to be missed!
