Garrow on Thomas

David Garrow claims that other reviewers have "missed the lede" on the new Clarence Thomas biography, suggesting that "Any reader who comes to this book without a pre-existing animus toward Thomas will likely feel tremendous empathy for his life story, even if the reader's legal views -- like this reviewer's -- differ from Thomas'." His sympathetic reading is on Law.com and will appear in the November issue of American Lawyer.
