Playing for Pizza

John Grisham 2010
Read: 2023

I can always read a John Grisham novel. This one is not a legal thriller, though there are lawyers involved. I’m not sure JG is allowed to write a book without mentioning the word lawyer. Part of his contract of something. Anyway, it’s about a down on his luck NFL quarterback who needs a new start. He moves to Italy to play with an Italian football team (yes – American football) in Parma. It’s a pretty male-oriented book, mostly about football and beautiful women. It was a quick read, but I almost think he wrote it so he can get tax deductions for all future trips to Italy. Fun read, but I’m not sure I recommend it.
