This weekend I had the chance to begin one of John Grisham’s novels, The Racketeer. The story centers around a former attorney, Malcolm Bannister, who has been imprisoned for ten years.
“How do you survive for years in prison? You don’t think about years, or months, or weeks. You think about today – how to get through it, how to survive it. When you wake up tomorrow, another day is behind you. The days add up; the weeks run together; the months become years. You realize how tough you are, how you can function and survive because you have no choice.” (Dell Books, New York, p17)
I have not read much of the book yet, but I am looking forward to finding out what he knows about the person who murdered a federal judge – and how he will use this knowledge to his advantage.
What are you reading this week? Feel free to share a few sentences from the book in the comments.
