Extract from Introduction

…..In this book I have chosen ten of my favourite Rumpole stories. They are the stories I have enjoyed writing the most, those which made me laugh a little when I was writing them (the only reliable test of a successful piece of work), and which drew some laughter from the actors when they read through the television versions. ‘Rumpole and the Younger generation’, was the story which became the first play in the first television series. ‘Rumpole and the Showfolk’, illustrated the make-believe world of law courts and the serious reality of theatres. ‘Rumpole and the Tap End’, had some basis in an actual case and shows that the end which a judge occupies, when taking a bath with his wife may influence his view of a case. ‘Rumpole and the Bubble Reputation’ deals with the ever-fascinating question of libel and the absurd monetary value placed on persons of the most doubtful repute………
