9781857997835: Ian Fleming

Updated to include new information on the Bond phenomenon, the definitive biography of author Ian Fleming, creator of James Bond 007, also includes information about Fleming's career in naval intelligence where he masterminded many top-secret operations. With Daniel Craig earning critical acclaim as the spy and signed for several Bond movies, both the character and his creator remain subjects of enduring popularity. Boasting an extraordinary cast of characters, this is biography at its best—part history, part gossip, and part an informed reassessment of one of this century's most celebrated yet mysterious personalities.

About the Author:

Andrew Lycett was educated at Charterhouse and went on to read modern history at Christ Church, Oxford. As a foreign reporter he specialised in Africa and the Middle East. A full-time author since the early 1990s, he has written a number of highly acclaimed biographies and lives in North London.

From AudioFile:

A rich life story is matched with an ideal reader. Andrew Lycett's literate, well-researched biography of Ian Fleming--whose string of James Bond novels capped an exciting life that included wartime service, espionage and love affairs--is an absorbing account of one of the most fascinating figures of popular culture. Lycett's sure grasp of the Bond novels also allows him to refer to pertinent and familiar scenes that reflect Fleming's many travels and earlier experiences. Robert Whitfield narrates the text in clear, crisp BBC English. His brisk pace fits Lycett's trim, balanced sentences. Fleming loved privilege, and his life story is served well by a reader whose performance connotes a patrician equanimity and style. G.H. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
