About the Author

Craig Chambers is a former editor of "Maxy's Journal", "The Vanderbilt Poetry Review", and "Poetry & Audience." He has been published in "The Little Review" and "The Greensboro Review." Chambers holds a literature degree from Vanderbilt University and a law degree from the University of Denver. He also contributed to "The Rocky Mountain News." In his junior year in college, Chambers attended the University of Leeds in England. He did not attend a single class, traveled around Europe instead. He came back and took the final exams, only to be disappointed that he got a 1 in English. He later learned that "First Honors" was the highest grade. In the '80s he became a real estate broker while he worked on developing his writing style. Chambers attended law school in the '90's because he observed a real estate closing where the lawyer messed up the deal, but still charged a fee of $1,000. He figured he could mess up a real estate deal for a lot less than that. His literary satire on the legal system, F*ck You, Your Honor, was released in June, 2017. He resides in Littleton, CO.

Reviews

from Midwest Book Review, F-ck You, Your Honor

"An unusual blend of political and legal satire offering thought-provoking insights into legal systems . . . Readers who want an out-of-the-box production that doesn't neatly fall into a particular genre but which subtly and effectively lambastes the ironies and inconsistencies of legal process will find much to enjoy in F*ck You, Your Honor, a sterling and lovely, vivid portrait of the transformative experiences of lawyers, law school grads, and obstacles to the pursuits of wealth and happiness." D.Donovan, Senior Review, Midwest Book Review

from San Francisco Book Review, F*ck You, Your Honor

Star Rating: 4.5/5

"The book is both ha-ha funny and funny uh-oh. Chambers is great with both internal and external dialog, with well-rounded characters and settings, making F*ck You an easy, funny book. And along the way, you are introduced to some of the intricacies of the legal system and courtroom processes."

From Jim Bates, Former Deputy Managing Editor, Denver Post

He is not always the most lovable character, but you rise and fall with him and in the end you are rooting for him. . . If your father was a lawyer, or you thought about law school or if you have served on a jury or have been served with a legal paper, you should give the book a try. You might learn something and you will likely enjoy it.

from Review of F*ck You, Your Honor, Seattle Book Review

Star Rating: 4/5

"Just when you think this is a man who really should be punished for breaking laws, he shows you a kinder, more conscientious side. He believes in free first appointments for potential clients and even does pro bono work for friends. There is more to him than even he realizes.

When he finally accepts the fact that he must complete this assignment to avoid losing his practice, what results is a book that is funny and poignant and does more than fulfilling the requirements of the sentence. One can't help but cheer for VanWye!

Star Rating: 4/5

"I was trying to decide if the author was the lawyer in question, hiding behind fiction, or of it was a bit of meta humor pulling my leg. Ultimately, it doesn't matter, it was a good book that I enjoyed reading and have no problems recommending it to others. . . I will say that the book felt like there was a bit of truth in it, and it makes me want to avoid ever having to deal with the justice system in a personal manner, and even less with lawyers for any reason." readafew

from Mark Lehnertz, Tattered Cover Bookstore (Indie Bound)

"The main character, Daryl "Wyn" VanWye, is an attorney and real estate broker, as self-unaware and ill-fit in his own life as Salinger's Holden Caulfied or Ignatius J. Reilly from Toole's "Confederacy of Dunces" . . .Even as we laugh or cringe at Wyn, there is something in this story which allows us to see that the mote in our neighbor's eye really is the beam in our own." from Mark Lehnertz, Tattered Cover Bookstore (Indie Bound)

from Portland Book Star Rating: 4/5

"Readers interested in satire and those who enjoy a touch of schadenfreude are likely to find this an enjoyable read."
