After an argument with his wife, Verity, Jason Button threw a stapler which struck her on the face. Is he guilty of violent assault? Or was it just a matter of bad luck? The incident also stirs up old tensions over Verity and Jason's prenuptial agreement and a bequest from Verity's father. BRIEFCASE, the first book of poems by District Court Judge John Adams, is a collection presented as a briefcase of lost documents and poems, allowing the author to play with a wide range of stylistic ideas around a central narrative theme, producing a mélange of poems - in traditional and experimental forms - and other texts: affidavits, police reports, a Sudoku puzzle, court transcripts, a menu, wills, commentaries. A disordered novella in legal documents, brutal and amusing by turns, Briefcase unfolds a fascinating story and also superbly explores the role of language as a vessel for truth and an implement of justice.
