Grisham has several books planned, fictional short stories to be released this fall

John Grisham’s immediate plans call for a book of fictional short stories to be released this fall, then another legal thriller in 2010 and 2011.

At some point, he would like to pick up where his 2001 novel A Painted House left off. Loosely based on his childhood in Arkansas, Grisham wants to explore his life from ages 12 to 22.

“That was some very turbulent times – the mid- to late-60s – growing up in the suburbs of Memphis when a lot of funny things happened,” Grisham said. “A lot of kids’ stories. A lot of baseball. But also some serious times. The civil rights conflict. The war in Vietnam. The disintegration of parental authority. All the stuff we lived through.

“But that book is a long ways off.”

    I read my first JG book,The Broker, and was very disappointed at the ending, given that it was a “stand alone” type. I do not usually read best sellers, but am an avid reader of historical detective fiction. Don’t hold it against me, but as a college professor I found, after the built up momentum, that I gave the book a B- grade because, without a sequel, it was too abrupt and facile at the denouement. The immanent danger fizzled and, despite my thoughts about it being an excellent “read”, with fair pacing and characterization, it turned out to be nothing but Bologna—-meaning, I liked the city, the man in the city learning a new language, and the endless motion, but ended up with no map to the future on a dead end. [Mainly because I read it in nearly one sitting…] If a legal thriller is due in 2010, try a sequel to the Broker, you will probably have a built-in audience. Isn’t that what a publisher craves? Perhaps a writer needs closure with some of his characters also—-that goes well beyond fiscal considerations. Try reading the entire Andrea Camilleri chronology regarding his main character—-if your Italian is still good enough! [The English translations have end-notes.] “RC”
