A voyage round John Mortimer by Valerie Grove( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Novelist, playwright, and barrister Sir John Mortimer has led an extraordinarily rich and daring life, privately and professionally, much of it in the public eye. His own writings, including the wildly popular books in the Rumpole of the Bailey series, his three acclaimed volumes of autobiography, and his screenplay for Brideshead Revisited, have rewarded readers and viewers with insight and humor. Now, biographer Valerie Grove has been given full access to Mortimer, tracing his legal and literary career, from his first attempts at writing novels and plays, through his great triumphs in court, to the creation of the popular character Horace Rumpole. Mortimer's personal life--including his marriages and his many affairs--is as colorful as any fiction he's written. Correcting the many errors and half-truths found in a previous biography, Grove's book is essential reading for Mortimer's fans.--From publisher description

The life and loves of Laurie Lee by Valerie Grove( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY: LITERARY. Laurie Lee was a towering figure in twentieth century British literature, seeming to bridge a gap between the Victorian and the post-war experience; the pastoral and the urbane. Millions of readers read and loved the lyrical account of his Gloucestershire boyhood, immortalised in Cider with Rosie. They also thrilled to the travels of the young Lee through Spain, playing the fiddle before being caught up in the Spanish Civil War. When he returned home, he spent almost the rest of his life writing about these youthful adventures. He was a poet, a playwright and a broadcaster, his books became classics, and he was devoted to two women: his wife and his daughter, "the firstborn". Publicly, he fostered the Laurie Lee legend. But behind his locked study door, in the letters and diaries he left, lay the revealing clues to his private pain and passion: the girls he left behind, the woman who took him to Spain, the woman he came back to
