    This first part of the autobiography of John Mortimer (1923-2009) recounts his solitary childhood in the English countryside, with an increasingly unconventional barrister father whose blindness must never be mentioned and a vague but endlessly patient mother; his boyhood dreams of a tap-dancing career on the stage and his early years in the career his father pushed him into, the law - the profession that was to inspire his hilarious literary creations.
