John Grisham’s latest book, “The Reckoning,” is part war novel, part legal drama. In it, Grisham returns to his favorite fictional setting, Clanton, Mississippi, to tell the story of a mysterious murder committed by one of the small town’s most prominent citizens, a cotton farmer who just returned from a tour in the Pacific during World War II.

In Grisham’s conversation with Diane, he explains how manages to publish a book a year, and discusses the politics of race in the South in the 1940s when “The Reckoning” takes place, in the 1950s and 60s when he grew up, and today.
