Ted Lewis' brilliant 1970 crime novel JACK'S RETURN HOME, famously filmed as 1971's GET CARTER, starring Michael Caine. GBH. Along with the dramatization, BBC4 is also airing "Lewis's Return Home," an audio documentary tracing his life and work, with contributions from writer – and Lewis aficionado - Nick Triplow. I recently included JACK'S RETURN HOME on my list of "The Five Best Crime Novels You've Never Read," for reviewer Elizabeth A. White's blog.
