Ford County is the best writing that John Grisham has ever done

Ford County: Stories
~ John Grisham
“Ford County is the best writing that John Grisham has ever done. Grisham has always had a rare gift for breaking hearts when he invokes unforgettable images of the broken, hopeless South. Some of the stories are hilarious, and Grisham’s gift of humour has never found a showcase like this. One of these stories should find its way into the anthologies of the best short stories of 2009. It might not happen, but I for one think the stories in Ford County are that damned good.”
