It's been a year of Morocco, America and European locations. It's been a year of Zeffirelli and Tea With Mussolini, and of the culmination of the campaign to rebuild the Royal Court Theatre. But it's also been the year when a fall signals the need for strategies of military proportions simply to get out of a chair or cross a room. In this bitter-sweet account of the onset of old age. John Mortimer's characteristic vivacity shines through as he lunches with old lags and captains of industry at Wormwood Scrubs, contemplates Barbara Streisand's legs and begins to suffer the afflictions that cast down his father at a similar age. Poignant and frank, 'The Summer Of A Dormouse' is vivid testimony to the pleasures and pains of old age.
