John Grisham

Né dans l'Arkansas le 8 février 1955, marié et père de deux enfants, John Grisham a commencé sa carrière comme avocat. Passionné d'écriture, il écrivait des romans à ses heures perdues. Son premier roman, "Non coupable" ("A Time to kill"), fut publié par un petit éditeur en 1989. Avec "La Firme", paru en 1991 et vendu à des millions d'exemplaires, il rencontra son premier grand succès. Depuis, "L'Affaire Pélican", "Le Maître du Jeu", "Le Client", "L'Associé", "Le Testament", "L'Engrenage"... ont déclenché le même enthousiasme auprès d'un nombre de lecteurs de plus en plus impressionnant. Mis en place à 2,8 millions d'exemplaires, chacun de ses livres est un véritable événement : à New York, on fait la queue devant les librairies pour se les procurer. Mais cela n'empêche pas l'auteur le plus lu dans le monde de vivre simplement et de déjouer les pièges de la célébrité.
