Lee Child, creator of the Jack Reacher books, on his best-seller ‘Never Go Back’

lee childJack Reacher. Loner. Warrior. A minimalist who lives by his wits and who always manages to outwit the bad guys, even when they are very bad indeed.

Author Lee Child is the creator of Jack Reacher, and his latest Reacher book is “Never Go Back,”  the fourth in a story arc (the previous three are “61 Hours,” “Worth Dying For,” and “A Wanted Man“). An engaging, ever-so-polite Englishman, Child started writing the Reacher books after getting fired from his British TV job – he bought $6 worth of paper and pencils and set to work. The rest of publishing history. The Reacher books have sold  80 million copies worldwide, and the latest is in its fourth week at or near the top of the New York Times bestseller list.

Tonight on “Well Read,” the books and author television show on state public affairs Network TVW, Child discusses how and why Reacher has become so popular. The show airs at 7 and 10 p.m. tonight on TVW (in Seattle, on Comcast channel 23). Or you can watch it here:
