John Grisham, one of America’s most widely read storytellers in print, is making his debut in digital. Random House, Inc. proudly announces the publication of the entire John Grisham backlist of twenty-three titles–from A TIME TO KILL to FORD COUNTY–as Random House e-books, beginning today, March 16. They will be available in the U.S. and Canada wherever e-books are sold.
With the addition of the e-books editions, John Grisham’s body of work is published by Random House, Inc. divisions in the now-customary three platforms–print, audio, and digital–and four formats: Doubleday hardcover, Dell paperback, Random House Audio, and Random House e-book.
More than 250 million John Grisham books have been sold worldwide and his works have been translated in twenty-nine languages. Since 1988, he has written one novel a year and every one of them has been a #1 New York Times bestseller. He has also published a critically acclaimed work of nonfiction, THE INNOCENT MAN, and a highly praised short story collection last November, FORD COUNTY, both of which also debuted at #1. His newest legal thriller is scheduled for Doubleday publication in October.
“John Grisham is one of the greatest storytellers of all time,” said Sonny Mehta, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of the Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group. “Since the publication of his very first book, he has captivated readers with compelling characters, intricate plotting, and narratives about social justice that are impossible to put down. This is one of our most exciting e-book initiatives to date, and is certain to usher in a new generation of Grisham readers and e-book adopters.”
“All of us at Random House are thrilled that we will now have the entire library of John Grisham’s work in all formats, and under one roof,” said Gina Centrello, President and Publisher of the Random House Publishing Group.
