Blachman's Blawg Review
Reading Jeremy Blachman's Blawg Review #68, I found myself wondering whether this might be his swan song to the legal blogosphere. After all, tomorrow brings the release of his novel, "Anonymous Lawyer," derived from his blog of the same name. The novel earned Blachman somewhere in the six figures, USA Today reports, and he is now "in talks" with Sony about a TV project. Might Blachman follow in the footsteps of Scott Turow, whose years at Harvard Law started him down a lucrative alternative career path? Or perhaps he will become another David E. Kelley, the former Boston associate who became a top-tier TV producer and husband of Michelle Pfeiffer. Law blogger Carolyn Elefant says Blachman's book is better than she expected, one that "will endure as a classic in the law profession genre of novels."
So, please do read Blachman's Blawg Review, but keep in mind that his days as a humble legal blogger may be numbered.
