John Grisham book’s are always fast reads. Calico Joe can (and most likely will) be consumed in one sitting – maybe two.
In Calico Joe Grisham creates a fine blend of fantasy and what if for baseball fans in general and Chicago Cubs fans in particular. Where Calico Joe shines is in its honesty about redemption. Calico Joe provides a look into the hearts and minds of people affected by one person and the manner in which they can (or cannot) forgive.
