‘It’s probably fairer to say that since his brush with morality, Mortimer has come into his own. There is this book, which is a triumph… And Away is as good a celebrity autobiography as you could hope to read, and enthusiastically recommend.’

– Daily Mail

‘…(a) fascinating and often poignant memoir.’
