Novelist Carroll Dale Short turned his hand to creative non-fiction with this profile of Alabama lawyer Julian McPhillips, issued in hardcover in 2000 and now out of print. The new paperback edition has been revised with a 2005 update written by the subject of the book, who had a lot to talk about. Over the past five years, McPhillips was Bill Bradley’s state campaign coordinator, ran himself for the U.S. Senate (he lost), and continued to build his reputation as an advocate for the underdog in cases ranging from police brutality to corporate malfeasance, from employment discrimination to product liability, and more.
