In this conversational style interview, Grisham provides insight into his new book A Time for Mercy as well as the inspiration behind the main character Jake Brigance, the hero of A Time to Kill, one of the most popular novels of our time. Many of Grisham’s books have been turned into film adaptations and it was Matthew McConaughey who brought Jake Brigance to life in the adaption of A Time to Kill. Grisham describes exactly how that came to be. Grisham also shares a glimpse into his writing processes, provides tips to aspiring authors, and his life as a youth baseball commissioner.
