Book Review: The Book of Air and Shadows

AirAndShadowsIt is not often that an IP lawyer becomes the reluctant hero. Gruber’s Book of Air and Shadows leads Jake Mishkin, a NYC copyright lawyer through a Shakespearean comedy as he attempts to recover a lost Shakespeare play, get the girl, and reconcile with his wife. . .  Mishkin reminds me of Saul Bellow’s hero Eugene Henderson, the Rain King – a large, morose, trustworthy, and lovable fellow. His practice is actually copyright law, but that is probably as close as our profession will get to popular fame.

Note:

  • I picked-up the book in the Chicago Airport on Monday and am about half-way through the book. This means that I’m assuming comedy.

  2. You have a typo:
