AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In Top Silk David Williamson continues his analysis of family life - this time set in the colourful world of the law. A legal aid solicitor and a prominent barrister battle over their individual careers and the future of their teenage son. Painfully they learn that there is a seamy side to justice at both the bottom and the top of Australian society and that occasionally, the young are wiser than their parents. (Publisher's blurb, back cover).
