John Grisham’s next book, which came out Feb. 1, has a familiar ring: “The Brethren,” which also happens to be the name of the 1979 bestseller about the Supreme Court by Bob Woodward and Scott Armstrong. Grisham’s fictional brethren are not the nine justices, but a trio of former judges who reside in a federal penitentiary and convene to make mischief. “We’re going torush out a reprint with a cover that looks like Grisham’s,” joked Woodward, an editor at The Washington Post. Armstrong, at work on a book about the Persian Gulf, also made light of the new title. “I’m not particularly worried about confusion,” he says. “It’s not like our book came out yesterday.” But the new book may make the old one less accessible. If you search for “Brethren” on Amazon.com, Grisham’s book pops up but the Woodward-Armstrong one does not – except in the auction category, where used copies are up for bid at less than $10.
