Murderers and Other Friends, by John Mortimer

“Murderers and Other Friends is John Mortimer’s autobiographical summing up of himself through his friends. The book moves from the long shadow cast by his father to his recent trip to South Africa with his son to explore his family background and especially to find out more about his mother, who gave up her life as an artist to dedicate herself to her husband. With wit, wisdom and tenderness, John Mortimer has written the story of the second part of his life, of the friendships that enriched it and of his family at its heart.”
