Smiling Jack




Will you help me? 

Can you teach me who Smiling Jack is?

It is in the novel called "Texas Woman Blues" by James Carlos Blake.

I am a student of translation.

Thank you.

I have never heard of Smiling Jack.  It sounds it could be the name of a musician or a gangster.

I also found an article on Wikipedia about a comic strip character named Smilin' Jack: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Adventures_of_Smilin%27_Jack.

However, Smiling Jack is not a commonly known cultural reference.

Have a good day!
