A riveting look into the world of James Bond and his creator, published on the centenary of Ian Fleming’s birth.
In "For Your Eyes Only," Ben Macintyre reveals where the world of Ian Fleming ends and the world of James Bond begins. Macintyre looks at the actual people on whom the writer based his fictional creations—friends, colleagues, lovers, and, of course, the notorious villains. Exploring the tradition of spy fiction past and present, with specific attention to the Cold War, Macintyre explains how Bond was based on the realities—and fantasies—of Fleming’s life as a wartime spymaster and peacetime bon vivant.
Stylishly illustrated, "For Your Eyes Only" features a collector’s dream of gadgets, costumes, props, and storyboards from the films—Daniel Craig’s bloodstained shirt from Casino Royale, the Aston Martin DB5, complete with weaponry—as well as memorabilia from Fleming’s personal archive: his smoking jacket, the manuscript for "Casino Royale," his golden typewriter, his guns, and much more.
BEN MACINTYRE is writer-at-large and associate editor of the London "Times," He is the author of "The Man Who Would Be King," "the Englishman's Daughter," "The Napoleon of Crime," and "Forgotten Fatherland," He lives in London with his wife, the novelist Kate Muir, and their three children
