We had the experience but missed the meaning.
- T.S. Eliot
Jim Zirin's new book The Mother Court is "a story engagingly, articulately and above all lovingly told".
Sex crimes prosecutor Linda Fairstein leads a double life as a top-flight lawyer and the author of 17 mystery novels, the latest of which Devil’s Bridge, is already a best seller. She tells Jim of the evolving standards of rape in America, and answers the question whether the St. Paul’s date rape case should have been brought at all.
