Fiction about the Law
In today's Wall Street Journal, John Mortimer -- author of the delightful Rumpole novels -- today lists his five favorite works of fiction about the law, available here. The only one that I haven't read is Mortimer's number one choice -- Anthony Trollope's Orley Farm -- which I intend to read soon. Number two is Charles Dickens' Bleak House, a choice with which I agree wholeheartedly. I can't recommend highly enough the PBS Masterpiece Theatre six-part dramatization of Bleak House. Here's the PBS website on the production with links to the PBS Shop, where one can purchase the DVD.
