I’ve interviewed Lee Child several times via satellite, but it wasn’t until June at Thrillerfest 13 in New York that I got to stand face to face with him for the first time. Okay, for the sake of clarity, let’s say face to neckline is a better description.
He may not have the muscles of his tough guy, revenge seeking hunk of a man in Jack Reacher, but Child is definitely a extra long in the suit department.
Thankfully, he’s not menacing either. At a cocktail party where the booze is flowing freely, anybody who’s put words to a chapter wants to get a whiff of the man who’s books shoot straight for the top of the New York Times Bestseller List.
Child’s latest effort, Never Go Back is circulating everywhere now and it was a pleasure to talk with him again.
Here’s a link to our conversation.
