Will Tripp, Pissed Off Attorney At Law

June 13th, 2014 - 5:27 am

Now that we have the “disinvitation season” behind us, that spring frolic in which our pampered institutions of higher education indulge in a little bacchanal of politically correct frenzy, inviting only to disinvite commencement speakers who have said or done something, anything, that does not pass muster with this week’s Commissar of Correctness—now, I say, that we’re well into June and the feminists, transexuals, racialists, eco-gender lesbian vegan anti-capitalists, and all the other assorted exotic fauna that congregate in and around the academy have decamped to restore their tissues and dream of victims yet to come, it is time for a little respite from that stultifying hothouse of intolerance.  I can think of few more delightful antidotes to that lank, joy-killing species of snarling self-indulgence than Harry Stein’s new novel Will Tripp, Pissed Off Attorney At Law. 

Meet Counselor Tripp. He’s a proud dwarf who was paying his way through law school by means of his athletic prowess, sort of. He made good money being tossed by the inebriated patrons of a local bar until some do-gooding crusader took time away from battling against second-hand smoke and carbon emissions to intervene to Save the Dwarfs and got the sport of dwarf tossing declared illegal. Will’s new employment as he struggled through law school was inspecting sewers.

It was while padding down the local cloaca maxima that Will’s settled dislike of politically correct busybodies hardened into a gem-like and hilarious contempt. I won’t give away the plot of this clever divertissement, except to say that the story takes place on a college campus near you and involves a deliciously repulsive feminist charlatan—you know her, too—and various emasculated specimens of homo academicus.

The Dwarf Tossing ban is based on a real case in Florida. It was notable that nobody asked the dwarfs, and they were really pissed off about losing the gigs, good money, beer, and the occasional girl. They had helmets and padding so it was pretty safe.
It would make a good TV series or movie also.
I could see Peter Dinklage from Game of Thrones really doing a good job as the title character.

Watch him be awesome as "The Station Agent." Fine, fine movie. I should like to see him play Will Tripp; it's on my Nook, and it's a satisfying hoot. In fact, everything Harry Stein has published is worth a read.

Dwarf tossing defended by a dwarf lawyer was a plot on LA Law in the '80s, but I take it that's just an intro to this novel.
