SUMMER OF A DORMOUSE, THE

Synopsis

In his paradoxically cheerful and cheering book about growing old gracefully, John Mortimer recounts what it's like to be 75 but feel 11. He describes his hilarious public duties, like chairing the committee to decide who should go on the empty plinth in Trafalgar Square, and also private matters like having to be in a wheelchair at glamorous New Labour parties.
