(From the publisher):
His private life was considered a scandal. His public life was called a sin.
No cause was too unpopular, no mode of behavior too unconventional, for Clarence Darrow. As a man, he followed the law of his own needs, flouting his marriage vows with a steady stream of beautiful women, dissipating his magnificent energies through a killing pace of work and pleasure. As a lawyer, he braved the wrath of the entire nation in unforgettable courtroom dramas that pitted one man against the entrenched forces of the Establishment.
Here is the passionate epic of a man larger than life in his appetites, his ambitions, and his genius.
Original title: Clarence Darrow for the Defense
