The Reacher Guy – Heather Martin

Description

Through parallels drawn between Child and his literary creation, this tells the story of how a lost and lonely boy from Birmingham with a ferocious appetite for reading grew up to become a high-flying TV executive, before coming full circle and establishing himself as an internationally bestselling author. Heather Martin explores Child’s lifelong fascination with America – and shows how the Reacher novels fed and fuelled this obsession.

Drawing on exclusive correspondence and conversations with Child over a number of years, she forensically pieces together his life, from Northern Ireland and County Durham to New York and Hollywood.
