‘Rumpole, like Jeeves and Sherlock Holmes, is immortal’ P. D. James

Horace Rumpole – dishevelled barrister at law, drinker of claret and smoker of cigars, inveterate quoter of Wordsworth and eternal defender of the underdog – is one of the greatest English comic characters ever created. This is the original volume of Rumpole stories, introducing us to the legal triumphs that first made the Old Bailey Hack’s name, along with a host of choice villains, frequent forays to Pommeroy’s wine bar and, of course, his formidable, magisterial wife Hilda, She Who Must Be Obeyed.

‘I thank heaven for small mercies. The first of these is Rumpole’ Clive James

‘A fruity, foxy masterpiece, defender of our wilting faith in mankind’ Sunday Times
