Dear Lupin….Letters to a Wayward Son by Charlie & Roger Mortimer

About the book

Nostalgic, witty and filled with characters and situations that people of all ages will recognise, Dear Lupin is the entire correspondence of a Father to his only son, spanning nearly 25 years. Roger Mortimer’s sometimes hilarious, sometimes touching, always generous letters to his son are packed with anecdotes and sharp observations, with a unique analogy for each and every scrape Charlie Mortimer got himself into. The trials and tribulations of his youth and early adulthood are received by his father with humour, understanding and a touch of resignation, making them the perfect reminder of when letters were common, but always special.

 

Reviewed by Museum

“Most of us found it very entertaining – witty and amusing, although one thought it trivial. Personally I was very impressed with his journalistic ability to pack so much into so few words”
