John Grisham

John Grisham sold 1,000 copies of his first novel, A Time to Kill, on his own self-guided tour of 30 small-town Mississippi libraries. Needless to say, he has accomplished much more since then.

When asked recently by Vanity Fair magazine what he considers his greatest achievement, he replied, Debuting at No. 1 on The New York Times best-seller list for 25 consecutive years.”

His latest novel, The Rooster Bar, about a law school scam, did just that.

In the December installment of the magazine’s famed back-page interview, “The Proust Questionnaire,” Grisham describes his greatest extravagance, his greatest regret and his most treasured possession.

Here’s a hint to how he answers those questions and others. When asked, “What is your favorite occupation?” he replied, Writing novels.”
