Playing For Pizza
A fallen American football star who can no longer get work in the National Football League and whose agent, as a last resort, signs a deal for him to play for the Parma Panthers, in Parma, Italy. The quarterback’s move to a small city in a foreign land leads to a series of cultural misadventures.
The idea for the novel grew out of time Grisham spent in Italy researching his novel, The Broker, which was set in Bologna.
The story of an American quarterback trying his luck in Italy, will come out in September 25, 2007. The 256-page book will be published simultaneously by Doubleday in the US and Century in the UK.
