The editors of the Oxford Anthology acknowledge the fact of the law and literature complex as part of literary studies but also as part of the syllabus taught in law schools. Not only do so many authors have a legal background, and not only are legal actions a process where human relationships can be viewed, as it were, in the raw, but the scrutiny of the legal text for implications and interpretations in the individual case shares a lot of common ground with literary studies. The editors of the anthology made their selection, unlike predecessors in the anthology format, by choosing texts ‘focused squarely on legal institutions, legal rules, or legal actors’, rather than including texts ‘broadly relating to crime and punishment, morality, psychological guilt, or divine justice’ (Shapiro and Garry 1998: ix).

In the real world, evidence arrives in bits and pieces. ’ I shrugged. ‘In a real courtroom, you sometimes hear the end of the story ﬁrst, and you don’t hear the beginning until the last day of the trial. It can be confusing unless you have a blueprint’ (Kahn 2003: 221). Later on this reality-effect enhancer is again mobilized when Gold ﬁnds it opportune to explain the complicated nature of ‘hearsay’ in a trial.
The editor informs the reader about his procedure: Among the novelists (often both practicing attorneys and writers) who returned a survey form with commentary, the following were chosen for their commentary on the craft of writing ﬁction or on the distinctions they drew between courtroom justice in ﬁction and in fact. The second part consists of a sampling of trial attorneys, and again, as is the case here, many are distinguished in both ﬁelds (White 2003: 481). White’s compilation is an invaluable tool for anyone interested in the law and literature ﬁeld, both the amateur looking for inspiration and for the literary/legal critic needing solid grounding for research issues.
