Theology a "nonfiction" genre: Scalia

"I think legal writing belongs to that large, undifferentiated, unglamorous category of writing known as nonfiction prose. Someone who is a good legal writer would, but for the need to master a different substantive subject, be an equivalently good writer of history, economics or, indeed, theology."

Scalia conjures, hallucinates at Manhattan club.
