Lee Child

Lee Child's latest Jack Reacher novel is A Wanted Man.

From his Q & A with Boyd Tonkin at the Independent:

Choose a favourite author and say why you admire her/him

Joseph Kanon. He sets his books in periods of recent history – they're inherently fascinating, plus he adjusts his style to reflect the period in subtle, satisfying ways.

Which fictional character most resembles you?

Little John from the Robin Hood legends: slightly thick, a faithful sidekick, more given to action than thinking.
* * *

Who is your hero/heroine from outside literature?

Richard Dawkins: lonely, brave and, above all, rational.
