Highly Recommended

I've just spent a good portion of a very productive day sitting by a pool reading Rumpole and the Reign of Terror, now available for the slick price of $4.79 in hardcover from Amazon. There's nothing quite like Rumpole of the Bailey, and if you've never seen Leo McKern portray him on PBS, you really ought to arrange a viewing right now.

Actually, the DVDs should be available at self-respecting public libraries.

Alas, Leo McKern, shown here, passed a few years back, but octogenarian John Mortimer is still chronicling the exploits of Horace Rumpole, aged junior barrister and holy terror of the Old Bailey. Read 'em in huge gulps, or trek to your library to read a piece at a time.
