Product description

Fiction. Fortieth anniversary edition with a new preface by the author. A best-selling book and award-winning film and television series, THE PAPER CHASE is at its heart the story of a young Midwesterner, James Hart, who finds himself in the great classrooms of Langdell Hall at Harvard Law School, locked in a zero-sum game with a dominating, omniscient deity: Professor Kingsfield, who asks not just for the student's mind, but for his soul. You quail at the exams, exult when you know the answers, love-hate Professor Kingsfield. It is also a love story that is as contemporary today as it was when the book was written, of a boy from the Midwest and a mysterious and demanding professor's daughter, who refuses to accept accepted wisdom or role models and demands from Hart a love that transcends law school and conventional norms.
