Today marks the 102nd birthday of Ian Lancaster Fleming (1908-1964), author of the James Bond novels and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Last year I left you with some posts to some older mini-bios of Fleming, this year I’ll just repost the books that I believe you should all read.
- The Life of Ian Fleming by John Pearson
- Ian Fleming by Andrew Lycett
- For Your Eyes Only: Ian Fleming and James Bond by Ben Macintyre (my review here)
- The Battle For Bond by Robert Sellers (my review here, keep in mind this book isn’t about Fleming, but a good chunk does go into Fleming’s part in the creation of the cinematic Bond.)
And obviously there are many many more.
