A Civil Action

Jonathan Harr (1948-)
A Civil Action
New York: Random House, 1995

This compelling book has so many interesting elements:
the search for the causal link between the pollution and
the cancer cluster; the financial risks taken by the
attorney representing the victims; the trial tactics
employed by the defendant’s attorney; and the victims’
reaction to the verdict. Yes, I’m a lawyer, but this is a
book that anyone would enjoy.
