Following the best-selling Summer of a Dormouse, Sir John Mortimer - playwright, novelist, octogenarian, and erstwhile QC - offers up more lessons in living and growing old disgracefully. What would we like to leave to our descendants? Not a third-rate painting or our PEPS, according to Sir John, but a love of Shakespeare, a taste for alcohol, the ability to defeat boredom, the importance of never locking the lavatory door, and so on.

Owing something to Montaigne's essays, something to Wilde's aphorisms, and something to Yeats' poem for his daughter, Where There's a Will offers plenty of advice from one who saw it all.

    " Re-read in light of Mr M's passing. Brilliant collection of aphorisms and genuine sense of passing on a lifetime's experience and wisdom. Particularly like the bit about finding complete happiness while peeing into a bucket in Basingstoke. "

    " Funny and pungent comments on life as he's lived it. "

    " Agree with Mortimer, those who think they know it all usually know the least; those who think they have all the answers have always lost the plot. "

    " The author of the Rumpole stories writes amusing essays, except when he whines too much about the Blair government "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher Bounds | 2/14/2013

    " Mortimer's writing is always delightful, and this has been living in my desk draw at work, to be snatched for an anecdote while waiting for something to process or while grabbing a quick cuppa in my office. "
