The AP reported yesterday that John Grisham‘s next novel is slated for a September publication from Doubleday – and is a departure from his usual courtroom setting. PLAYING FOR PIZZA is the story of an American quarterback trying his luck in Italy. “I was pleasantly surprised to find real American football in Italy,” Grisham said in a statement issued by Doubleday, “and as I dug deeper, a novel came together. The research was tough – food, wine, opera, football, Italian culture – but someone had to do it.” The book following PLAYING FOR PIZZA, out in Spring 2008, will see Grisham back in the courtroom.
