Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by John Grisham

Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

The master of the legal thriller returns to his roots with this collection of short stories, which introduces readers to the residents of Ford County, Mississippi. Read by the author, the stories range from the bizarre to the melancholic and even the hilarious. Grisham's narration is superb, particularly in the first tale, "Blood Drive," in which three ne'er-do-wells venture to Memphis to donate blood to an injured friend but end up getting into a case of beer and a ton of trouble along the way. Each character is carefully crafted, in terms of both prose and performance. Grisham’s confident Southern drawl gives the stories a certain air of small-town myth. L.B.
