Stranger than Fiction


Jeremy Blachman, author of Anonymous Lawyer, writes in the Times,
On Anonymous Lawyer, I paint a frightening picture of life at a law firm. People trip each other in the halls for fun, lawyers work from the hospital while giving birth and no one ever gets a weekend off. Yet a number of law students, not realizing that my blog is fiction, have assumed that the law firm I write about actually exists and have sent me résumés, wanting to work there. Maybe the truth wouldn't be as harmful as some of these employers think. Maybe it's O.K. to let people write about their jobs.
