Nino and Me: My Unusual Friendship with Justice Antonin Scalia review Ñ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Join or create book clubs ´ 0 free download summary Ì PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Join or create book clubs From legal expert and veteran author Bryan Garner comes a uniue intimate and compelling memoir of his friendship with the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin ScaliaFor almost thirty years Antonin Scalia was arguably the most influential and controversial Justice on the United States Supreme Court His dynamic and witty writing devoted to the Constitution has influenced an entire generation of judges. Bryan Garner is our foremost authority on the history and use of the English language and on the craft of writing He is widely recognized as the country s leading teacher of legal writing and advocacy Justice Antonin A Scalia was the acknowledged master craftsman of the US Supreme Court for almost 30 years writing with a verve and snap that even his ideological opponents recognized for its brilliance For almost ten years these two men collaborated on books lectures and interviews about how the law should be interpreted argued over and written aboutNino and Me is Garner s memoir of the intellectual partnership that grew into a tight friendship Far from a weighty appraisal of Scalia s legacy the book is bright and joyful racing from an initial meeting and the audacious suggestion to co write a book to the sessions of fashioning language acceptable to two strong and stubborn intellects to the sets of 60 Minutes and CNN The book invites you into the chambers of the Supreme Court and to the tables with the best food and wine in town good meals being another of the friends shared passionsJustice Scalia was a complex man warm gracious engaged yet also anachronistic and temperamental Garner is not a mere acolyte or scribe but emerges as his own figure proud creative sometimes hurt or angered by his partner s conductThe intellectual tugging between the men is nicely balanced by their genuine affection and devotion to each other perhaps best exemplified by the stories involving Garner s wedding at which Scalia officiated and the friends final trip together to Asia Upon their return from that trip Garner writes he gave Scalia a hug for the first and only time Scalia was choked up Eight days later the justice diedThe knowledge of how the book must end does not detract from the pleasure of spending time with Nino and Me The book is part Boswell part Pickwick Papers part Webster s and a treat for anyone hungering for the smart conversation of bright people Lawyers and word lovers will especially treasure the sensation of being invited to a wonderful dinner party where literate people share their love of knowledge and ultimately of each other
