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.
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 really enjoyed reading all the short stories although I do have to confess that some of them I just plain did not understand.
I found Death Row: A Situational Comedy to be tragically funny. I thought how the characters thought and interacted to be both humorous and sad at the same time.
The Adventures of Ed Tuttle Associate Justice was kind of a surprise to me. I didn't expect the story to go where it went. I look forward to reading more about him.
Other stories like The Joy of Shopping for Odds and Ends and E=MC3 I really did not understand. But I found the stories that I didn't understand did not take away from my enjoyment of the collection.
This was the my first experience with the writings of Jay Wexler and I look forward to reading more from him.
