Grisly Ham

September 27th, 2007 at 6:35 am

John Grisham has a new book, Playing For Pizza, and it doesn’t take place in a courtroom and does not contain the typical John Grisham-trite elements of a crime, lawyers, a courtroom, drama, intrigue, mystery, and a Hollywood-appropriate, dramatic-yet-inevitable-yet-surprising ending.

No, “Playing For Pizza” is about a football player who gets cut after a disastrous performance and goes to play for an Italian football team. It’s supposedly a funny, heartwarming look at second chances. Oprah, is this one for you?

So do you mean that now that John Grisham is “stepping away from the courtroom”/deviating from his clich├ęd formula of hack formulaic, depraved, derivative writing that he is actually a “writer?” An “author?” A “novelist?”
