Well, he hasn't written the book yet. But Anonymous Lawyer writes the nasty, satirical truth/fiction(?) about BIGLAW life on his blog, and his readers chime in in the comments with a mixture of awful meanness and spite, and, at moments, raw honest confessions from their own professional lives. I read the weblog weekly. I find that AL makes me laugh, and sometimes the comments of his readers make me cringe. The contrast between AL's voice -- bitter, sarcastic, but honest and funny, with an eye for authentic detail -- and the tone of those who comment on the site makes me admire AL himself more than I might otherwise. After all, the guy and the life he describes is a picture of the worst kind of credential snobbery, relentless materialism, and disregard for family and real relationships -- almost a caricature of the worst parts of the legal profession. But there's enough glimmer of humanity -- AL's clearly not happy, and at times reflects on his choices with a real vulnerability -- to keep it from being a caricature. The readers who chime in don't have quite the skill or depth, generally, although their voices corroborate the truth AL is describing.
Anyway, Evan Schaeffer wants to help AL write a book, and asked me to help. Not help with the writing, but help connect AL to a publisher. Heck if I know any publishers, or how to write a book from a blog. Do you?
