John Grisham biography and information

  • John Grisham's first novel, A Time to Kill, was published in 1987. The author spent three years finding time to squeeze the writing around his day job working at a small law practice in Mississippi.

  • On the day after he finished A Time to Kill Grisham began writing his second novel, The Firm, about a young attorney "lured to an apparently perfect law firm that was not what it appeared." His second book was a huge success selling 1.5 million copies, being adapted to film in 1993 starring Tom Cruise and Gene Hackman.

  • As of 2012, his books had sold over 275 million copies worldwide. A Galaxy British Book Awards winner, Grisham is one of only three authors to sell 2 million copies on a first printing, the others being Tom Clancy and J.K. Rowling.
