Overview

Following the bestselling Summer of a Dormouse, Sir John Mortimer—playwright, novelist, octogenarian, and erstwhile QC—offers up more lessons in living and growing old disgracefully. What would we like to leave to our descendants? Not a third-rate painting or our PEPS, according to Sir John, but a love of Shakespeare, a taste for alcohol, the ability to defeat boredom, the importance of never locking the lavatory door, and so on.

Owing something to Montaigne's essays, something to Wilde's aphorisms, and something to Yeats' poem for his daughter, Where There's a Will offers plenty of advice from one who saw it all.
