John Grisham


John Grisham has written eighteen novels, one of them, Bleachers, is a favorite with the eleventh graders.

The guys sit in the bleachers and relive their high school memories. If you liked Bleachers; if you like football; if you like Italy, you might like John Grisham’s newest novel, Playing for Pizza.


Playing for Pizza is about a third-string quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. Somehow, he got in the AFC Championship game and did such a terrible job that he was cut by the Browns and shunned by every other professional football team – well almost every team. The Panthers of Parma, Italy, want him. They believe a previous NFL player will help their team.


How will this quarterback survive in the land of romance, fine wines, opera, and football americano? Read Playing for Pizza to find out.
