Is there any genre John Grisham canít write? It would be enough to have written only the spellbinding legal thrillers, which made him famousófrom The Firm to The King of Torts. But in recent years, he succeeded with novels like A Painted House and Bleachers, which showed readers he could write just as well outside the courtroom. And then when he did return to court, as he did with the damning true crime investigation, An Innocent Man, he showed us he was just as comfortable writing nonfiction. And now, with Playing for Pizza, he shows us that whatever he writes displays his irresistible storytelling powers.
