by Peggy Garrity
If you’re a fan of former O.J. Simpson prosecuting attorney, Marcia Clark, you will love this memoir by Peggy Garrity as Marcia has hailed the book as a “riveting memoir.” Including compelling courtroom dramas featuring would-be presidential assassin Sara Jane Moore, celebrities Clint Eastwood, Sondra Locke, and Cheryl Tiegs, and some of Los Angeles’s most notorious murder cases, In the Game is the groundbreaking story of a thrill-seeking solo trial lawyer—and single mother—who beat the odds at a time when working mothers, especially those in male-dominated professions like the law, faced the gauntlet of discrimination.
So this year ( and really every year) I made a resolution to read more Non Fiction and classics. It is now October and I’m just know tackling the Non Fiction part of that reading resolution. I have a good stack of non fictions and I can’t wait to share them with you. Non Fiction books are usually not my cup of tea but I thought this might be a good one to start off with seeing that I love a good crime drama. In the Game: The Highs and Lows of a Trailblazing Trial Lawyer was just what I needed to really get into this stack of books. Peggy Garrity is a fighter and she isn’t going to back down when she is pushed against a wall. She is a tough women who needed to be in a man’s world job. She was faced with work place discrimination, chauvinism. I would hope that in today’s world she wouldn’t experience this but who knows. I enjoyed reading her point of view on her high profile cases and many big name celebrity names were dropped. Overall I really enjoyed this behind the scenes look into the legal world.
