Representing Remarkable Writers

The long-awaited ‘Dear Lumpy’ is Published by Constable & Robinson

22 April 2013

Dear Lumpy, the delightful sequel to Dear Lupin, was published on Thursday 18 April 2013. This collection of letters from a concerned father to his disobedient daughter is a perfect example of the glorious art of letter writing, and the timeless relationship between father and child.

“Dearest Lumpy, I hope you are plump and well. Your mother bashed her car yesterday and chooses to believe it was not her fault...”

Roger Mortimer's witty dressing-downs and affectionate advice were not only directed at his wayward son, Lupin. Though better behaved than her mischievous older brother, Louise (aka 'Lumpy') still caused her father to reach for his typewriter, often in an hilarious way.

The trials and tribulations of Louise's days at boarding school, her eventful wedding to ‘Hot Hand Henry’ and the birth of his grandchildren are all accompanied by a sometimes chiding, but always loving letter.

Between these milestones, Roger gives updates on the family, pets and the local gossip, holds forth on the weather, road safety, and even suggests the best way to make a gravy soup, all in his own inimitable style.

With the same unique charm and often snort-inducing humour that made Dear Lupin a bestseller, Roger Mortimer guides and supports his daughter through every scrape she found herself in.
