A few years back we occasionally displayed and reviewed fiction with a law theme. Fiction is awesome and the mid-year break is coming, so I'm recycling those reviews. Seven types of ambiguity was the first book we featured, chosen because it was written by a barrister, Elliot Perlman. And because it’s about crime, imprisonment and trial. It’s also about psychiatry, families, health care, insider trading, ethics, so it just about covers the law school curriculum except for Treaty of Waitangi (understandable in an Aussie book), Law and Religion (may be the eighth type of ambiguity), and International Law.
It’s also about gambling, prostitution, literary criticism, love. And it's a great big book.
