A Biography

Rate this:
While attending the dramatic trial of a 12-year-old girl who had been violently raped and beaten, Grisham had his first powerful inspiration. He was profoundly affected by the tears of the jurors as they considered the evidence regarding the harsh violation of this poor young girl, and he wondered if he could convey that sorrow in writing. With this, Grisham decided to write his first fictional novel. It would tell the story of what would have happened had the girl's father murdered her assailants. Only three years later, the book was complete and A Time To Kill was printed. At first, the book was not well received by the publishing community. In total, 28 publishers refused to print the book, but the author persisted. He eventually found a small-time operation called Wynwood Press that agreed to print an initial 5,000 copies in 1989. The books were sold to booksellers directly by Grisham himself and eventually a few sales were made.
