Promotional Information

A wickedly funny debut novel about a high-powered lawyer whose shockingly candid blog about life inside his firm threatens to destroy him.

About the Author

Jeremy Blachman is not a hiring partner at a major law firm, but he is the author of a popular American blog called Anonymous Lawyer (www.anonymouslawyer.blogspot.com). The blog was profiled in The New York Times and receives an average of more than 100,000 readers a month. Blachman is a recent graduate of Harvard Law School and lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Reviews

Blachman's side-achingly funny debut, derived from his popular blog of the title, is written in the candid, sanctimonious voice of Anonymous Lawyer, an ill-humored, ill-tempered hiring partner at a prestigious New York firm. Anonymous Lawyer is an 18-year man whose compulsion to blog is almost as strong as his desire for the firm's chairmanship. When he's not facing off with his nemesis, The Jerk, in the race for the chair, he takes solace in degrading his summer interns and hapless associates for his quickly developing cult of readers (who e-mail with guesses at his identity). The dirt Anonymous Lawyer dishes is crude, and grounded in his own snobbery and narcissism: his female victims include The One Who's Never Getting Married, The One Who Missed Her Kid's Funeral and The Bombshell (at the annual office charity auction, a date with her went to Lives With His Mom for $6,000). Predictably, potential unmasking makes things sticky for the potential chairman, in what is pretty much the book's single plot point. Written in the rapidly dating blog-form and about as subtle as a punch to the kidneys, the dead-on exaggerations of Blachman, a recent Harvard Law grad, are nonetheless more than enough to propel this debut.

Blachman leaps from his hot new blog (anonymouslawyer. blogspot.com) to a debut novel about a high-power law partner whose acidulous blogging efforts are not as anonymous as he thought. Yes, there's a virtual tour. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

"Stocked with up-to-the-minute references, and exposing, as it does, our culture's mania to win at all costs, ANONYMOUS LAWYER has pierced the heart of a moment in our social history" * New York Post *
"A rather entertaining satirical debut that offers an expose of the lives of US corporate lawyers and what really goes on behind closed doors" * www.bookbag.co.uk *
