Pittsburgh college peeved at Grisham

John Grisham's new novel, "The Associate," (surely, there's a John Grisham title generator out there somewhere) came out on Tuesday. I'm sure you've all read it twice and cast the inevitable film adaptation in your head by now (too late, it's already cast). But some are not so enthusiastic. Officials from Pittsburgh's Duquesne University are far from pleased that a central plot element places a drunken gang rape scene at the school.

Grisham, ever the researcher, offered this as an explanation for the setting to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

In an e-mail yesterday, Mr. Grisham said he chose Duquesne simply because he'd seen the campus once. He said he's been here many times to take in Pirates and Steelers games.
