Book Description Viking Books, 2001. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Book Description: John Mortimer has led an extraordinary life as a playwright, bestselling novelist, and former practicing barrister. In The Summer of a Dormouse, the third installment of his autobiography, he describes what it is like to be seventy-seven years of age but to feel like a child. While he suffers from the afflictions that his father had to contend with-asthma, glaucoma-and added some of his own, he continues to live with boundless energy, passion, and humor. The Summer of a Dormouse is a warm and charming chronicle of one year in a rich and very full life. When most people his age are in full retirement, John Mortimer is still motoring through life, taking on new projects-working on a film with Zeffirelli in a house in Rome, contriving the renovation of the Royal Court Theatre building, and championing his most passionate cause, prison reform. Whether in the English countryside, the center of London, the heart of Tuscany, or the streets of Morocco, he embraces life and work with enthusiasm and compassion, revealing himself as one of the most astute and generous figures of his generation. About the Author John Mortimer is the author of many books including twelve volumes of Rumpole stories, as well as the bestselling Summer's Lease and Paradise Postponed. He lives with his wife and youngest daughter in the house in Buckinghamshire that his father built. Seller Inventory # 0003135
