Summary

Andrew Graham-Dixon travels to New York to meet best-selling author Lee Child, whose Jack Reacher thrillers start their Hollywood incarnation this December with Tom Cruise in the title role. Michael Smith examines the thinking behind Beck's new album, which is coming out as a songbook of sheet-music that the musician wants others to perform and interpret. Tom Dyckhoff picks some of his favourites amongst the 200 pieces on display at the V&A's new furniture galleries, which open next month. Mark Kermode talks caravanning, killing and comedy with director Ben Wheatley, whose movie Sightseers is one of this year's most hotly-tipped British films, and there is a selection from the archive of avant-garde film-maker Jonas Mekas ahead of a show at the Serpentine Gallery and a tribute from the BFI.
