Like many men his age, Ed Tuttle is having a mid-life crisis. He is bored with his job, uncertain about his faith, and unable to find love in the wake of divorce. Unlike most other men his age, however, Ed Tuttle is a justice on the United States Supreme Court.

As the swing vote in one of the most contentious terms in recent memory, Justice Tuttle holds the future of the nation in his hands, a tall order for someone who can barely make it through a weekend without making a monumental life mistake.

In this hilarious and poignant debut novel, Jay Wexler—law professor, humor writer, and former law clerk to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg—reminds us that power is wielded by real, often emotionally fragile people and that nobody, regardless of how successful, powerful, rich, intelligent, lucky, or influential they may be, is immune from the feelings of restlessness, doubt, and anxiety that are inherent in living in the modern world.

About the Author:

Jay Wexler is a law professor at Boston University and the author of two non-fiction books that combine legal analysis and humor—Holy Hullabaloos: A Road Trip to the Battlegrounds of the Church/State Wars, which Publisher's Weekly said in its starred review was "laugh out loud funny," and The Odd Clauses: Understanding the Constitution Through Ten of its Most Curious Provisions.

Review:

"Penned by a Boston University law professor and former Supreme Court clerk, Tuttle in the Balance offers a goofy and fundamentally human take on one of the nation's top government figures that's likely to appeal to those who prefer political humor to political drama. . . . Along with the laughs, it also delivers some solid musings on success, friendship, and aging." --The A.V. Club

"What would happen if a swing-vote justice suddenly suffered a mid-life crisis? That's the premise of Tuttle in the Balance, a funny novel by [Jay] Wexler, a former clerk to Ginsburg. After a 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." --Tony Mauro, National Law Journal

"Just like corporations and Soylent Green, Supreme Court justices are people too. Unbeknownst to us, the justices may get drunk, engage in regrettable sexual encounters, and doodle pictures during oral argument. This is one of the main themes of Boston University law professor Jay Wexler's new satirical legal novel Tuttle in the Balance, which depicts a bored Supreme Court justice undergoing a midlife crisis. The novel, which is a cross between American Beauty and the works of Christopher Buckley, is a humorous and enjoyable read for any lawyer or law student." --Above the Law
