A View from the Bread Line, Grisham's Next Novel?
So South Texas law prof Tim Zinnecker is a bit peeved in a tongue-in-check sort of way about John Grisham's reference to "the murky world of federal taxation or the tedium of the Uniform Commercial Code" in Grisham's The Associate. But the real pressing question is will Grisham's next novel be entited "A View from the Bread Line?" Opening sentence from Chapter 1: "The IRC's murky world and the tedium of the UCC were nothing compared to the mundanity of filing for unemployment comp benefits." See NLJ's Leigh Jones' For Law Firm Associates, It's Been a Decade of Thrills and Chills.
Best wishes to our colleagues -- law librarians and their support staff plus lawyers, paralegals, IT staffers and others -- who are suffering from the disruptive consequences of this economy. [JH]
