But who is John Grisham--the real John Grisham? He is an illusive, private, and mysterious person, who shuns publicity. The author of The John Grisham Story: from baseball to bestsellers peels away the layers of this fascinating Mississippi boy, who longed to be a professional baseball player. Grisham was a criminal lawyer, a Mississippi legislator, and is presently a novelist.
Grisham came from a family of storytellers. His gypsy life as a child, moving from Arkansas to many small towns in Mississippi, was fodder for many of his ideas.
Life experiences for Grisham left him full of disdain for lawyers, politicians, and government. Yet, he is a spiritual man, a family man, and an anonymous giver to charities.
Buried behind his acres of land in the rolling hills of Virginia, Grisham coaches Little League and uses his novels to espouse his causes against homelessness, insurance scams, and crooked lawyers.
Here is the inside story of John Grisham, written in a lively, informative, and colorful style.

I received this book as a gift, and was told it was a "print on demand" book, which means that they don't print the book until after you pay for it. This book is poorly written, with choppy and repetitive sentences. I don't recommend spending the money to have it printed. (The author is a playwright, and perhaps her plays are good.)
