John Grisham is one of the most prolific and beloved mystery writers today, still reaching the top of the bestseller lists with books like "The Testament" (1999) and "King of Torts" (2003). In recent times, he has also experimented with different genres, such as "A Painted House" (2001), a semi-autobiographical work, and "Skipping Christmas" (2001), a holiday narrative. This volume follows up the critical analysis of Grisham's work in John Grisham: A Critical Companion, examining his writing from 1997 to the present.

Cu adevarat o carte foarte interesanta! "Testamentul" Imi convine foarte mult modul in care autorul - John Grisham - descrie atmosfera incordata ce se creaza intre personajele ce au pretentie la mostenire..combinand cu un umor ironic pe seama starii respectivilor (care este exact pe gustul meu) - imi place asta. I-am acordat 5 stelute..
