This week we have some Ian Fleming action in store for you, courtesy of our LA correspondent Matthew Chernov. A major new Fleming biography titled The World is Not Enough has just been published in hardcover by Rowman & Littlefield, and Matt conducted an exclusive interview with the book’s author, Oliver Buckton.
Join us for an in-depth and fast moving discussion that covers Fleming’s greatest strengths as a writer, his relationship to the women in his life, popular misconceptions about him, the portrayal of race and racial issues in his Bond novels, the history of the Vesper martini, and much, much more. Oliver even answers our popular ‘quickfire questions.’
Oliver Buckton is professor of English at Florida Atlantic University, and is the editor of the book The Many Facets of Diamonds Are Forever and author of Espionage in British Fiction and Film Since 1900: The Changing Enemy. His latest work is The World is Not Enough: A Biography of Ian Fleming.
Oliver graciously sent us a special discount code that knocks 30% off the price of the book if JBR listeners purchase it directly through the Rowman and Littlefield publisher website.
Use discount code is: RLFANDF30.
