James Fleming

Saturday 24th - 09.30


Just when you thought there was nothing left to say about James Bond or his creator, Ian Fleming, comes Bond Behind the Iron Curtain by James Fleming (Ian Fleming’s nephew) which looks at the world’s most famous secret agent from a completely different angle: through the eyes of the communist bloc.

James Fleming was born in London in 1944, the fourth in a family of nine children. He read history at Oxford and has been variously an accountant, farmer, forester and bookseller. The author of two previous novels, The Temple of Optimism and Thomas Gage, and three thrillers, Cold Blood, White Blood and Rising Blood that feature the Scottish/Russian character Charlie Doighe, he lives in Scotland.
