There's a brand new book out now called simply Jack Rosenthal and it's the first-ever critical work on the writer. Written by Sue Vice, who is Professor of English Literature at the University of Sheffield, this book will be of interest to students and researchers in Television, Film and Cultural Studies, as well as contemporary drama and Jewish Studies, and the general reader. Highly recommended.
And did you know that Jack Rosenthal's wife, Maureen Lipman, once appeared on Corrie? She played the part of Lilian (never, ever Lily) Spencer, a relief manager at the Rovers Return.
