Format: Paperback
Wexler has set out to - well, I'm not sure what he *set out* to do, but he has done something genuinely interesting with humor writing: he's redefined what it can be. This book might be sort of shocking or uncomfortable if you go into expecting it to be like what you already think humor books are supposed to be like. It's kind of like Tim & Eric Awesome Show, but smarter and possibly even stranger (if you like things like T&EASGJ, you'll like this for sure).

If this is experimental writing, the experiment works - you'll recognize much of it as funny, but you'll also find yourself thinking a lot about the stories later as you work out what the complicated jumble of reactions you were having might have been. It's a really weird exploration of the funny/sad and fantastic/banal. If something can be great without your knowing why it's great or how the greatness came about, this is that great thing.

Format: Paperback
Prof. Wexler's collection of short stories is a trip through a variety of landscapes, not all of which relate to the law or lawyers. I read the "black and white zoo" story out loud to my kids, it was so hilarious. Many of the other stories, though, were head scratchers: alien law librarians, frequent negative experiences with clams, and so on.

Some attempts at humor fell entirely flat, or made me wonder whether they were intended to be funny or not. Lawyers who love baseball will enjoy the reimagining of Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor's appointment hearing but most of the nuance of who the participants were and the importance of things like the infield fly rule were lost on me.

My lack of enthusiasm for this book is as much connected to my expectations (that it would be about the law, it would be funny, etc.). Prof. Wexler writes well and readers who enjoy short stories, especially those that are a bit unusual, will probably enjoy this book.

I got about halfway through the book before I lost interest in it. A series of short stories that range from bizarre to funny to (unfortunately) boring.
