Need a summer read? Radar's got you covered. A hilarious new novel, The Curve is a highly entertaining and deeply ironic satire of the current state of legal education, and reads like a cross of Dangerous Minds and The Paper Chase.

The new book tells the story of students at Manhattan Law School, a decrepit institution on the edge of the toxic Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, who are geographically-challenged and mad as hell — in debt up to their eyeballs and fighting over the few legal jobs left for those who are far outside the Ivy League.

It features a colorful cast of eccentrics and law school misfits, a satirical plot that — without too much of a stretch — could be ripped from the headlines, and a proven author duo of Jeremy Blachman and Cameron Stracher, who know the law school world and have six previous books between them.

The Curve is now available on and hits bookshelves June 7. Check out the hilarious website at!
