New Biography of Justice Thomas

Reviews of a new biography of Justice Clarence Thomas—Supreme Discomfort:  The Divided Soul of Clarence Thomas, by Washington Post reporters Kevin Merida and Michael Fletcher—are now coming out.  My own review of the book will appear in the next issue of National Review (bearing a cover date of May 14 and being mailed out later this week).  For now, I will say only that although the book is interesting in a number of respects, it suffers from some serious flaws.
