A Time To Kill: Novel of Retribution.



Item Number: 136097

New York: Wynwood Press, 1989.

First edition of Grisham’s first book. Octavo, original half cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title page in the year of publication, “To Barbara Best Regards John Grisham 9-10-89.” Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Susanne DeMarco. An exceptional example.

A Time To Kill was rejected by numerous publishers before Wynwood Press eventually published it in a small first printing of only 5,000 copies. "Grisham's pleasure in relating the Byzantine complexities of Clanton politics is contagious and he tells a good story...An enjoyable book" (Library Journal).
