I just finished Grisham's "The Last Juror"
It was another artless "paperback" - fit entertainment for
a "dumb-downed" population.
Mississippi once produced the likes of Faulkner. Now, because
of such an overwhelming demand for cheap entertainment, authors
like Grisham, use name recognition and crank out best sellers
like "King of Torts" and "The Last Juror" that have little
literary value and provide ineffective social commentary.
