When Simeon Simcox, a socialist clergyman, leaves his entire fortune not to his family but to the ruthless, social-climbing Tory MP Leslie Titmuss, the Rector's two sons react in very different ways. Henry, novelist and former 'angry young man' turned grumpy old reactionary, decides to fight the will and prove their father was insane. Younger brother Fred, a mild-mannered country doctor, takes a different approach, quietly digging in Simeon's past, only to uncover an entirely unexpected explanation for the legacy. An exquisitely drawn saga of ancient rivalries and class struggles, featuring a glorious cast of characters, Paradise Postponed is a delicious portrait of English country life by a master satirist. Read by Paul Shelley.

    " Ok, not as good as his Rumpole writing "

    " John Mortimer is a rare treat. I believe he is better known for the Rumpole books, but his Rapstone Chronicle is not to be missed. This is a very funny look at society in Great Britain following the changes wrought by Margaret Thatcher and the Tories. I loved it. "

    " John Mortimer at his best. The Rise and rise of Leslie Titmuss. Satirical, ironic and very funny. Wonderful. "
