Need a summer read? Star’s got you covered. A hilarious new novel, The Curve is a highly entertaining and deeply ironic satire of the current state of legal education, and reads like a cross of Dangerous Minds and The Paper Chase.
The new book tells the story of students at Manhattan Law School, a decrepit institution on the edge of the toxic Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, who are geographically-challenged and mad as hell — in debt up to their eyeballs and fighting over the few legal jobs left for those who are far outside the Ivy League.
It features a colorful cast of eccentrics and law school misfits, a satirical plot that — without too much of a stretch — could be ripped from the headlines, and a proven author duo of Jeremy Blachman and Cameron Stracher, who know the law school world and have six previous books between them.
