The film Get Carter was based on a book called Jack's Return Home by Ted Lewis. The influence of both book and film can be felt to the present day, but what of the man who wrote this seminal work? Nick Triplow’s new book Getting Carter is a meticulously researched and riveting account of the career of a doomed genius who lived a cycle of obscurity to glamour and back to obscurity again, dying in anonymity at only 42.

Nick Triplow will be in conversation with the crime writer Douglas Skelton, followed by a screening of the 1971 classic film. All tickets £10.00. Screening on 35mm.

Screening as part of Aye Write! - Glasgow’s Book Festival - 15th to 25th March 2018
