    DescriptionThirty years have passed since eleven-year-old Paul Tracy watched his troubled father, Warren, a pitcher for the New York Mets, clash with his childhood hero, the Cubs' golden-boy Joe Castle, in a contest from which no winners emerged. Now the news that his father is dying brings the memory of that day flooding back. Deciding that it's time to face up to what really happened on that baseball field in 1973, father and son make their way to Calico Rock, Arkansas, where either redemption or rejection awaits them.

    Review quote
    Praise for CALICO JOE: 'There is much to admire here, from the flinty depiction of the father-son relationship to the vivid sporting action' John Dugdale, Sunday Times Culture 'Calico Joe is a typical virtuoso display of Grisham's natural story-telling skills. A superbly written book' Sunday Express 'An enjoyable, heartwarming read that's not just for baseball fans' USA Today Praise for THE LITIGATORS: 'Grisham is brilliantly comic in a novel that is full of zest and brimming with memorable characters and rich storylines... The legal storylines are typically rich in social detail and instances of entertaining rascality... Away from his usual southern turf, Grisham is turned by Chicago into a more Dickensian writer, soft-hearted at times but predominantly funny... a brilliant comic set piece' The Sunday Times 'The Litigators is a thrilling romp through the murky world of lawsuits and shysters - rich and poor. Packed with [Grisham's] signature twists and turns, not to mention lots of double-dealing, be careful if you're reading The Litigators on the bus, you may just miss your stop' Irish Independent '[A] snappy, well-turned novel...Grisham brings his usual nuanced understanding of tort law and civil jurisprudence' Washington Post 'Entertaining... bitingly farcical' Publishers Weekly Praise for John Grisham: 'The best thriller writer alive' Ken Follett, Evening Standard His stories are ferociously plot driven: they will keep you awake all night Independent on Sunday Grisham is a superb, instinctive storyteller The Times No one does it better than Grisham Daily Telegraph
