    Prior to writing satirical novels, Jere Krakoff was a civil rights attorney.  He practiced with the ACLU National Prison Project in Washington, D.C., the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law in Mississippi, the Pennsylvania Institutional Law Project headquartered in Philadelphia, and Neighborhood Legal Services Association, a legal aid program in Pittsburgh.


His first book, Something Is Rotten in Fettig (Anaphora), lampooned the criminal justice system of a fictitious Republic.  His second, The Chameleon Shuffle (Open Books), cast a critical eye on the same Republic’s High Court.  Both novels were inspired by people, places, and events he observed while litigating and a lifetime of witnessing some of the best and worst of the human condition.
