James Bond: My Long and Eventful Search for His Father

James Bond: My Long and Eventful Search for His Father

(2012)
A Novella by

 
The James Bond we know and mostly love was a creation as much of the movies as of the books by Ian Fleming. Len Deighton, author of the classic espionage novel 'The Ipcress File', knew both sides intimately. An acquaintance of Ian Fleming's (who had praised Deighton's debut novel in the 'Sunday Times') Deighton was also close to the man who was to become Fleming's nemesis - Kevin McClory, a veteran of the British film industry.

The history of Bond's development under the arc lights becomes, in Deighton's expert hands, a saga-like story of inflated egos and poisonous vendettas, exotic locations and claustrophobic courtooms, all involving household names. As an eye witness to the protracted disputes that complicated Bond's depiction both on screen and on the page, Deighton is in a unique position to tell what he saw. Candid, comical, always steely-eyed, this hefty slice of cinematic memoir reads with all the high-powered pace of a Len Deighton thriller.

Len Deighton is the bestselling author of more than thirty books of fiction and non-fiction. He is perhaps most famous for his spy novel 'The Ipcress File' which was made into a film starring Michael Caine.
