about this item

Inspired by an actual court case that dragged on for more than 50 years, Dickens tale of the inheritance suit between Jarndyce and Jarndyce remains a standard metaphor for legal quagmires. The author drew upon his own experiences as a law clerk and plaintiff to enliven his satire of the English judicial system, a richly plotted tale of secrets, murder, and mystery.
