Inhaltsangabe: In this, the third installment of his memoirs, John Mortimer, best known as the creator of the Rumpole stories, describes what it is like to be seventy-seven years old but to feel like an eleven-year-old at heart. Though he suffers from the afflictions with which his father contended-asthma, glaucoma-and has added some of his own, he continues to live with boundless energy, passion, and humor. While most people his age are in full retirement, Mortimer is still motoring through life-traveling to Edinburgh with a substitute wife, lunching with prisoners, and dealing with common politicians. Wherever he goes-London, Tuscany, Morocco-Mortimer embraces life and work with enthusiasm, revealing himself as one of the most astute and generous figures of his generation.

"If Mortimer is a dormouse, he is definitely a mouse that roars." ( San Francisco Chronicle )

"Mortimer is an entertainer, yet his book addresses serious themes, declines at all turns to condescend to the reader, is written with grace and humor, and manages unfailingly to amuse." ( The Washington Post Book World)

Inhaltsangabe: It's been a year of Morocco, America and European locations. It's been a year of Zeffirelli and TEA WITH MUSSOLINI, and of the culmination of the campaign to rebuild the Royal Court Theatre. But it's also been the year when a fall signals the need for strategies of military proportions simply to get out of a chair or cross a room. In this bitter-sweet account of the onset of old age, John Mortimer's characteristic vivacity shines through as he lunches with old lags and captains of industry at Wormwood Scrubs, contemplates Barbra Streisand's legs and begins to suffer the afflictions that cast down his father at a similar age. Poignant and frank, THE SUMMER OF A DORMOUSE is vivid testimony to the pleasures and pains of old age.
