Scottish thriller writer Ian Rankin on the long and troubled life of his creation, detective John Rebus
Author Ian Rankin is just as funny, smart and charming as his books. He came through Seattle in January, and “Well Read,” the books-and-authors television show on state public affairs channel TVW, snagged him for a talk about Scottish police detective (and world-class curmudgeon) John Rebus, the unlikely hero of 19 Rankin books. Rankin tells what it’s like living with a character who in many ways is the opposite of his creator.
Here’s a link to the interview. It also airs tonight on TVW, but exactly when depends on when the state legislature gets the job done today. Usual time is 7 and 10 p.m., subject to legislative intent.
For more information, here’s the Seattle Times review of Rankin’s latest book.
