Paradise PostponedBook - 1985
Ultraliberal clergyman Simeon Simcox, rector of the village of Rapstone Fanner, leaves his entire fortune to Leslie Titmuss, a social-climbing conservative politician. As Mortimer recounts the gossip and dastardly goings-on in Rapstone Fanner, he creates a wickedly funny, totally absorbing portrait of British life from the austerity of World War II to the dubious prosperity of the eighties. This delightful social comedy was adapted by Mortimer into an eleven-part series for Masterpiece Theatre.
