The definitive biography of author Ian Fleming

Ian Fleming's life was just as dramatic as that of his fictional creation, James Bond 007. Andrew Lycett's direct access to Fleming's family, friends and contemporaries has enabled him to reveal the truth behind the complicated facade of this enigmatic and remarkable man.

Blending history, gossip and an extraordinary cast of characters, this is biography at its best - and the definitive examination of one of the twentieth century's most celebrated yet mysterious personalties.
