The definitive biography of author Ian Fleming
Ian Fleming’s life was just as dramatic as that of his fictional creation, James Bond. Andrew Lycett’s direct access to Fleming’s family, friends and contemporaries has enabled him to reveal the truth behind the complicated facade of this enigmatic and remarkable man.
With an extraordinary cast of characters, this is biography at is best - part history, part gossip and part an informed reassessment of one of this century’s most celebrated yet mysterious personalities.
This new edition also addresses how Fleming and Bond can be seen in the light of changes to society over the past half century or so, in particular in relation to the MeToo movement.
