About the Book
San Francisco Attorney Melvin Belli was crowned "The King of Torts" by Life Magazine in 1954. Millions of words have been written by and about him. This book is unlike any other. In it, seen through the eyes of a young associate, he is stripped down to billowing white boxer shorts, wandering between connected hotel rooms in Chicago. The book progresses from the first beguilement with Belli to the later turning away from his values. It is an illustrated moral tale.
