In Chambers: Stories of Supreme Court Law Clerks
This is a collection of essays, some by the people themselves. Nothing too novel for someone familiar with the history, but some good stuff re. the changing role and flavor of the justices (1880s to 2000s) involved. Generally rather positive, so we don't get all the flaws, except for Douglas, of course. Interestingly, the mostly forgotten Charles Whittaker is included.
