A racy, gamey inside peek at the legal profession which does for lawyers what My Flag Is Down did for New York cabbies. There's no attempt at autobiography but rather disjointed recall of long poker sessions, a broken down prize fighter, over-sexed and alcoholic secretaries, polygamists, bootleggers, salesmen, drunken judges, swindlers, madmen, mad women, lushes, lady hearse drivers, gamblers, rich clients, and of course the succulent tid-bits of the divorce courts. He tells of his father and his life spent in heckling the town judge; of his own boyhood career running errands in a bar, working as a law clerk. But most of the book recounts tales of woe and fringe adventures in the profession. Fast, spicy reading.
