John Grisham is the author of forty-seven consecutive #1
bestsellers, which have been translated into nearly fifty
languages. His recent books include The Judge's List,
Sooley, and his third Jake Brigance novel, A Time for
Mercy, which is being developed by HBO as a limited series.
Grisham is a two-time winner of the Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction and was honored with the Library of Congress Creative Achievement Award for Fiction.
When he's not writing, Grisham serves on the board of directors of the Innocence Project and of Centurion Ministries, two national organizations dedicated to exonerating those who have been wrongfully convicted. Much of his fiction explores deep-seated problems in our criminal justice system.
John lives on a farm in central Virginia.
Grisham does nonfiction (his first ever), and that's all we know. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
