British barrister turned writer John Mortimer is best known in the U.S. for Rumpole of the Bailey. However, his popular and prolific output includes numerous plays, television drama, novels, essays and memoirs. In England, he has gained equal fame for his long anticensorship activism. Clinging to the Wreckage (1981) recalls and comments on significant occurrences in his long life and times. His amiable wit and keen observation inform even his most painful memories. Unfortunately, the narrator injects a self-pitying note. Otherwise, he gives a delightful, unpretentious reading that brings home every nuance of Mortimer's intelligence and charm.
