In a piece for its Supreme Court Brief, which is by subscription only, Tony Mauro of the National Law Journal lists Tuttle in the Balance as one of ten books for the Supreme Court Aficionado in your life. He says:
What would happen if a swing-vote justice suddenly suffered a serious midlife crisis? That’s the premise of Tuttle in the Balance, a funny novel by Wexler, a former clerk to Ginsburg. After divorce and a rejuvenated sex life, Justice Ed Tuttle finds himself bored on the bench, seeking thrills in all the wrong places. It’s improbable, for sure, but the court details are accurate and readers will find themselves eager to learn how it all turns out.
