Editorial Reviews

Leo McKern delivers another hilarious and decidedly unique performance as Rumpole in John Mortimer's Rumpole a la Carte, a collection of short stories based on his BBC radio plays. McKern's gruff British delivery of the humorously stodgy old barrister will take listeners right back to England. What antics will Rumpole get up to next with his wife on his case, and he on a case at "Old Bailey"? Fans of the BBC plays and the TV series will treasure this collection and ask for more.

Publisher's Summary

Rumpole is back! Rumpled, rummy and rumbling, Horace Rumpole has returned with more of Mortimer's dependable blend of wit, wisdom and Wordsworth. The eccentric barrister of the Old Bailey reveals more of the immortal moments of his life, both in court and surviving "she who must be obeyed."
