Publisher's Summary

Creator of the mysteries starring the beloved English barrister, Horace Rumpole, John Mortimer paints a spirited portrait of his own colorful life in his quirky autobiography, Clinging to the Wreckage. With wit and style, he takes you from his austere childhood in a 1930s British boarding school to his successful dual career in law and writing during the 1980s. Raised on his barrister father’s sordid tales of divorce cases, young John Mortimer grew up to view the world with an acute sense for the absurd. As an adult, he has maintained his huge appetite for laughter and life, despite his daily legal work defending violent criminals and handling shipwrecked marriages.

Novelist, playwright, and esteemed former barrister, John Mortimer draws on his many talents to create his wry, urbane memoirs. Patrick Tull’s splendid narration of this sophisticated book will have you laughing out loud and asking for more.
