9780141019543: A Voyage Round John Mortimer

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

'Candid and conscientious...It sails as close in-shore as is possible for anyone but the subject himself to get.' -- Peter Lewis, Daily Mail

'There is everything you could want in this funny, engaging, very well-written book in terms of fact and anecdote.'
-- Sam Leith, The Spectator

'This is a quite brilliant biography. Meticulously researched and compulsively readable.' -- Kathryn Hughes, Mail on Sunday
