Playing for Pizza




AN AMERICAN CLASSIC FROM THE NO.1 BESTSELLING MASTER THRILLER WRITER.

Playing for Position

Rick Dockery is an NFL quarterback who can’t catch a break. One huge mistake makes him a national laughing stock overnight, and no team will touch him.

Playing for Pizza

But all Rick knows is football, and he needs to find a team. Against all odds, Rick gets his break – as star quarterback for the Panthers… of Parma, Italy.

Playing for Pride

Rick doesn’t speak a word of Italian, and the crowds there aren’t exactly NFL-standard. But football americano is about more than fame, and home comes in the most unlikely of packages.

Praise for Playing for Pizza

“Grisham comes into his own. The man knows how to crank up the tension, we are soon on the edge of our seats. Read this book, enjoy it.”

Daily Express

“Playing for Pizza is well plotted and shows Grisham's gift for coming up with twists and appealing minor characters.”

Sunday Times

“Playing for Pizza is a lyrical page-turner and a gasp-inducing reminder of the scope of this man's genius with the written word. Grisham is something of a Da Vinci with words. He can blow your brains out with the power of truth or paint pictures that magically reveal the reality beneath. This is a smooth, satisfying and delightful read.”

Sunday Express

“Grisham's writing takes on an energy and precision in this amiable novel”
