02.01.12 — Short Takes, Professor Michael Meltsner’s 1979 novel about an ambivalent New York lawyer contemplating his life and loves, has just been brought out in a new edition. The Boston Globe called it an “engaging and extremely well written first novel, [that] creates a character of enormous vitality and considerable charm: funny, caring, searching and all-too-humanly paradoxical.”

The novel is now available in a new paperback and eBook release from Quid Pro Books, an independent academic press that also features fiction by law professors and other scholars. It was first published in hardback by Random House. The new edition features cover art by Mexican artist Oscar Martinez Heredia.
