#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR • Look for special features inside. Join the Random House Reader’s Circle for author chats and more. The year is 2008 and Samantha Kofer’s career at a huge Wall Street law firm is on the fast track—until the recession hits and she is downsized, furloughed, and escorted out of the building. Samantha, though, is offered an opportunity to work at a legal aid clinic for one year without pay, all for a slim chance of getting rehired. In a matter of days Samantha moves from Manhattan to Brady, Virginia, population 2,200, in the heart of Appalachia, a part of the world she has only read about. Samantha’s new job takes her into the murky and dangerous world of coal mining, where laws are often broken, communities are divided, and the land itself is under attack. But some of the locals aren’t so thrilled to have a big-city lawyer in town, and within weeks Samantha is engulfed in litigation that turns deadly. Because like most small towns, Brady harbors big secrets that some will kill to conceal. Praise for Gray Mountain “[An] important new novel . . . superior entertainment.”—The Washington Post “Powerful . . . a satisfying, old-fashioned, good guy/bad guy legal thriller.”—The Christian Science Monitor “Yes, Gray Mountain is fiction. But after reading the book, you’ll believe heroic action must be taken.”—USA Today “Grisham has written one of his best legal dramas.”—Associated Press From the Trade Paperback edition.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Gray Mountain: A Novel By John Grisham | Conversation Starters A Brief Look Inside: John Grisham’s 2014 legal thriller, Gray Mountain, focuses on the life of a pauper and society’s view of injustice. The main character, Samantha, faces the ultimate challenge and disappointment when the high-power law firm she drudgingly serves gives her only one option—work for a non-profit firm of theirs and, possibly get your prestigious job back. The victim of a law firm that loses prosperity, Samantha is desperate to keep her place among the elite. She learns a quick lesson in the importance of serving humanity first through placement with the Mountain Aid Legal Clinic. Her life looks a bit “gray” on the mountain of suffering she discovers exists in the world, which changes her entire perspective on life, including a new chance at romance. Gray Mountain was touted to be an “angry but important” novel by the Washington Post due to its focus on the coal miners’ life at Big Coal. Released in 2014, following another serious look at human suffering in Sycamore Row (2013), this novel took the number 3 slot on the New York Times bestseller list for 10 weeks.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Published in 2014, Gray Mountain is a legal thriller focusing on strip mining for coal. It is set in Appalachia, a town in eastern America. This story centers around a lawyer named Donovan Gray who is a big character in such a small town and certainly to Samantha Kofer. Samantha is new to the area from New York, and having previously worked in the capital's biggest law firm is feeling decidedly out of place. Set in the times after the Great Recession, we see third-year graduate Samantha learning on her feet in a small town that plays by its own rules. After the economy taking a nose dive, Samantha finds herself far from her former dreams of earning huge wages in New York. She is desperate to keep the benefits of her former role and has arrived at Appalachia on the promise of being taken back if the company finds itself in credit again. While working under Mattie Wyatt at the Mountain Legal Aid Clinic, she soon learns what a tough world she has entered where coal miners have little to no rights, even riddled with disease solely attributable to their working environment. This novel by John Grisham beautifully captures both the stunning scenery that the story is set in, but of the colliding worlds of face paced New York and the slow but deadly Appallachia. Donovan Gray is the nephew of Mattie Wyatt and is on a mission to tackle the big bosses of the strip coal mining world. In doing so, John Grisham enlightens us to the dangers of this world and the damage it is doing to both the environment and the people working in it. Highlighting the extremity of the work, Donovan takes on a heartbreaking case where an upended boulder rolls down and flattens a worker's house, killing his two boys inside. The story then hones in on the proceeding court case and Donovan seeking justice asking for a settlement. Samantha meanwhile is involved in a love interest, and also abused by men in the town. * A highly researched book that was written with assistance from Mary Cromer, an attorney for Appalachian Citizen Law Center. *Written by the Mississippi born John Grisham who has seen many of his books become on-screen portrayals. *Worldwide best seller in the thriller field. *Takes an insightful look into the contrasts of city life, exploring the impact of the Great Recession and also the terrible working conditions of those working in coal mining. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 10.0px 0.0px; font: 15.0px Arial; color: #555555; -webkit-text-stroke: #555555} span.s1 {font-kerning: none; background-color: #ffffff} span.s2 {font-kerning: none}
