Mortimer_Rumpole of the Bailey

Based on the TV series, this book is as much about the tribulations as the trials of Horace Rumpole, an eccentric and oft-thwarted, poetry-quoting English barrister. Rumpole’s wins may be pyrrhic at best, but are humorously bolstered by his free-flowing, sardonic ruminations.
