Library Journal - Library Journal
Fortunately, in reading this fascinating life of Fleming (LJ 6/1/96), British narrator Robert Whitfield exudes his own sophisticated charm to present interesting anecdotes about the celebrated author. Although the names James Bond and Ian Fleming are often interchangeable, Fleming's career as a newspaper correspondent and stockbroker and his passions for golfing, fishing, playing bridge, and collecting books are far from the life of 007. Here Fleming is characterized as handsome, moody, egotistical, and emotionally immature, among other things. In all, Fleming is as well drawn as any character Dickens could create of a well-born youth whose happy childhood in the Edwardian era consisted of a sophisticated country house and a Georgian mansion in London. The multifaceted man behind one of our cultural icons is successfully revealed. Recommended.Barbara Mann, Adelphi Univ., Garden City, NY
