In this program, Bill Moyers and John Grisham, best-selling author of The firm, The pelican brief, and The rainmaker, engage in a far-ranging conversation that offers insights into the background and beliefs that influence Grisham's work and provides an unexpected look at his views about the state of the nation. Also on the program: Katherine S. Newman, coauthor of The missing class: portraits of the near poor in America, on the state of the economy; a look at the predicted $2.5 billion political ad budget for the 2008 election, a windfall for big media; and an essay that separates the facts from the spin at the World Economic Summit in Davos, Switzerland.
