The name’s Fleming, Ian Fleming

Today is the centenary of the birth of Ian Fleming, creator of the world’s most famous secret agent, James Bond. To mark the occasion a special edition of all the books has been issued and today also sees the launching of a new Bond novel Devil May Care by Sebastian Faulks, author of Birdsong and Charlotte Gray.

According to the museum’s website the exhibition — and Ben Macintyre’s book written to accompany it — examines the extent to which the books and the films “reflect the reality of the Cold War and how much they were a product of Fleming’s prodigious imagination”. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
