Teaser Tuesday: Nibble and Kuhn, a novel by David Schmahmann

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Should Be Reading Choose two sentences from your current read, and add the author and title for readers.



"Success at law, it seems, makes men prissy, feebly narcissistic, women as alluring as barbed wire. And failure is worse."


(from an uncorrected proof of Nibble & Kuhn. Final copy may differ.)

An inside look at the workings of a large corporate law firm.

"Two likeable newcomers learn the ropes of corporate law at Nibble & Kuhn - and fall in love - just as that most proper of Boston's venerable firms comically tries to 'rebrand' itself for the Google era." - from the publisher's description.
Advance review copy of the novel provided by the publisher.

Since I'm half of a two-lawyer couple who met at work, maybe I should read this one and reminisce.

That sounds fantastic. Thanks for posting the tease.

Glad that a few lawyers and those who know lawyers are finding this teaser interesting! Can't wait to see what the inside of corporate law is like. If it's like any other workplace, sometimes chaotic and totally irrational.

sounds like a non-typical romance is brewing. If you want to wander down my road I’m home.

Great line - I am curious, though, is it fiction or nonfic? I couldn't tell from the blurb. My teaser is a bit wordier, but not as descriptive.

Nice tease! I'll be back for your review!
