I am reading John Grisham’s The Litigators. Of course it is good. He is the best author in America, probably the best in American history.
The Litigators was funnier than I remember the other Grisham books being. Especially in the beginning. Laugh-out-loud funny.
Grisham is a good writer, but he’s a one-note-Nelly. He writes about lawyers and legal cases, the “Litigators” being another case in point.
Using the ability to write across a spectrum of topics, I’d put before you these:
Louis L’Amore who did westerns, medieval, boxing, short stories, and the sea.
Mark Twain (of course) who did culture, river, short stories, and scifi/fantasy.
John Steinbeck who did American culture, Hispanic culture, the sea, the depression, the underdog,
“He is the best author in America, probably the best in American history.”
Nope. Lawrence Block is.
