Rumpole a la Carte

John Clifford Mortimer / Author Penguin Books $12 (256p) ISBN

These six tales of judiciary retribution find barrister Horace Rumpole in a pretentious nouvelle cuisine establishment and on a bleak modern university campus. According to PW , this collection ``abounds with wit, familiar eccentrics and those moments of eloquence that make justice seem as simple and desirable as common sense.'' (Dec.)
