Example text

Its confined space, traditional arrangement of seats indicating opposition and confrontation, even the built-in facility for a ‘live’ audience, are factors that almost beg for filming. g. Terence Rattigan’s The Winslow Boy (1946)). Even more are novels rendered directly or adapted into the vision and sound media. Arguably, most people immediately think of cinema when the talk is on legal thrillers. As a consequence most of the criticism of and research on legal thrillers from a popular fiction perspective of has dealt with the genre in either a film studies or, more comprehensively, a cultural studies framework.

Also from 1998 is William Bernhardt’s Legal Briefs: Stories by Today’s Best Thriller Writers. The contributions to this volume were commissioned by the editor. As nine of the eleven stories have 1998 as their copyright date, and as all eleven authors, including the editor, have legal backgrounds, the anthology may be taken as a fairly good indicator of the concerns in the legal area capable of and worthy of transformation into a narrative fictional environment. Bernardt’s own answer to the question about the continued popularity of legal novels (‘thriller’ is used in the anthology’s title and on the flap text) is that Our world is more complex than it has ever been, and people are still looking for answers, for solutions.

The legal thriller seldom offers the verbal and conceptual intricacies that White finds a literary-critical treatment helpful to illuminate.
