MORTIMER AT LARGE is a selection of the best columns written by Peter Mortimer since 2003, and published weekly in the News Guardian series of newspapers on North Tyneside.

The Mortimer column is unlike any other column in the region, a unique mix of the comic, the satirical, the surreal and the bizarre.

Whether he is advocating an underwater theatre festival, revealing weapons of mass destruction in a Whitley Bay litter bin, inviting Prince Harry to officially declare open ‘his new gate’, or waxing lyrical on the joys of cold water bathing in the North Sea, Mortimer’s individual writing always brings an odd comic twist to reality.

Pitched somewhere between Beachcomber and Flann O’Brien, MORTIMER AT LARGE has become essential weekly reading for thousands of North Tyneside inhabitants, and though often inspired by events in the area, its imaginative and unpredictable response transcend any sense of regional confinement, and imbue it with its own peculiar universality.

Peter Mortimer is a poet, playwright, travel writer and theatre director, and a well-known figure in the cultural life of the North-East, where he has lived for more than thirty years.
