“Fetching Raymond” is  short story from “Ford County Stories” by John Grisham

Leon Graney borrows Mr. McBride’s upholstery business van for a road trip with his mother, Inez,  and brother, Butch.

They are going to visit their other brother, eternal optimist, Raymond, at Parchman prison.

As the road trip unfolds we learn about the Graney’s and find out what this particular visit is about.

Very moving short story, but, very similar (I wonder if Grisham wrote one then got the idea for the other) to “The Confession” that I recently finished.
