Grisham on the writer's life

24 March 2003

'I get up at six to write. But, and I shouldn't say this, it's really not that hard. It looks crazy what with books and movies, but it's very much the opposite. I live on a farm in the foothills of mountains where nobody can find me. It's beautiful; it's very quiet. And I spend several hours every day just wreaking havoc with American literature. That's my revenge.'

John Grisham, quoted in the Sunday Times
