Book DescriptionLike most of the world, John Pearson assumed that James Bond was nothing more than a character in Fleming's highly charged imagination. Then he began to have his doubts. He finally became convinced that James Bond was not only real, but actually alive. This book must be one of the most extraordinary biographies of our times - the authorised life of a myth, the official biography of James Bond. Here Pearson reveals amazing adventures, situations and incidents only hinted at in Ian Fleming's books. This promises to show a side of Bond never seen before.
Editorial ReviewBased on a simple but brilliant idea, meticulously and lovingly researched. Pearson writes wonderfully well about the charismatic Fleming. Essential reading for Bond maniacs. * Daily Mail * "Riveting. Pearson has given the old spy real flesh and bones. The biography has some fine touches. Pearson brings Bond amazingly to life, expanding on adventures that were merely hinted at in the novels. In this age of teh emasculated male, Bond is a joy to behold." * Daily Express * "It is always an intriguing experiment for one author to take on the popular creation of another - and it is one that is carried out with aplomb by John Pearson here in this sly, witty and hitherto rarely seen exercise. This 'authorised biography' is a clever, bittersweet disquisition on what becomes of our heroes. But more than this, it is also a shrewd running critical commentary on Fleming, going some way to explain the outbreaks of bleakness and sourness in the original novels, and also ingeniously explaining away a lot of their absurdity. It is an enjoyable exercise in having cake and eating it." * Daily Telegraph * "John Pearson's book fills the reader in on everything Ian Fleming left out. A quick fix of glamour and adventure. Pearson's book contains sex, sophistication and intrigue." * Financial Times *
