Book review: A Painted House by John Grisham


The cover of the book

A Painted House is the story of cotton farming, baseball, family secrets, poverty, and growing up in Arkansas in the 1950s. A bit of a deviation from your standard John Grisham, but I’m not complaining.

Book review: The Firm by John Grisham



Perhaps having read Patriot Games recently has given me a certain intestinal fortitude/high tolerance for pulp.

Not that I’m advocating the reading of John Grisham as such, but it really wasn’t as bad as all that.
