Reviews

Grisham's (www.jgrisham.com) first collection of short stories, in which he returns to the Ford County, MS, setting of his first novel, A Time To Kill (1989)-also available from Books on Tape and Random Audio-proves his talent beyond the genre of legal thriller. The author himself reads, his Southern accent adding to the authenticity of the characters, including a data collector from an insurance company with an aptitude for blackjack, a man dying of AIDS, and a trio of misfits on a road trip to Memphis. These are just some of the quirky individuals whose stories Grisham expertly weaves together in a crazy-quilt style to create a picture of life in Ford County. Listeners will love it; highly recommended. [See Major Audio Releases, LJ 10/15/09; the Putnam hc, which was published in November 2009, was a New York Times, USA Today, and LJ best seller-the pb will publish in July 2010.-Ed.]-Theresa Stoner, St. Joseph Cty.
