Excerpt from Richard Roe. A Memoir of a Legal Person



In March of 2019, I published Richard Roe, a book that claims to be the memoir of one of the oldest legal persons in English case law. The conceit is fairly ridiculous, for Roe is hardly enough of an individual to give a consistent account of his life. Invented by the law to mask the identities of untold agents, he can do little more than perform as a consummate mouthpiece. He is most himself when he is spoken through.
