Peter Boyer’s excellent New Yorker (abstract only) on Cory Booker is a lot of things: a political history of Newark; a sort-of convincing attempt to define an ‘Oprah Winfrey wing’ of the Democratic party; and a grim account of last summer’s triple murder in the Ivy Hill section of the city, which may end up a defining event for the Booker mayoralty.


There is a law firm angle to the story as well: after graduating Yale Law School, Skadden Arps granted Booker a fellowship that paid him $37,000— roughly equivalent to midlevel associate’s bonus— to practice public interest law in Newark.  Money well spent.


(Another Booker-Skadden connection: firm alumnus Aney Chandy is special counsel to the mayor.)
