Product description

"Devil May Care" will be published in May 2008 to celebrate the Centenary of Ian Fleming's birth. This new installment in the adventures of the world's most iconic spy has been written by one of Britain's most admired novelists, Sebastian Faulks. 'My novel is meant to stand in the line of Fleming's own books, where the story is everything' said Faulks, 'In his house in Jamaica, Ian Fleming used to write a thousand words in the morning, then go snorkelling, have a cocktail, lunch on the terrace, more diving, another thousand words in late afternoon, then more Martinis and glamorous women. In my house in London, I followed this routine exactly, apart from the cocktails, the lunch and the snorkelling'.Picking up from where Fleming left off in 1966 with "The Living Daylights / Octopussy", Faulks has written the perfect continuation of the James Bond legacy. "Devil May Care" is set during the Cold War and features all the glamor, thrills and excitement that one would expect from any adventure involving Bond...James Bond.

Author information

Sebastian Faulks was born in April 1953. Before becoming a full-time writer in 1991, he worked as a journalist. His French trilogy -- The Girl at the Lion d'Or, Birdsong and Charlotte Gray (1989-1997) -- established him in the front rank of British novelists. UK sales of Birdsong exceed 2,500,000 copies, and for this novel he was named "Author of the Year" by the British Book Awards in 1995. It is regularly voted one of the nation's favourite books. Charlotte Gray has also sold over a million copies and was filmed with Cate Blanchett in the main part. Faulks's other novels include A Fool's Alphabet (1992), On Green Dolphin Street(2001), the epic Human Traces (2005), and most recently Engleby (2007). His biographical study of three doomed young men of the 20th century, The Fatal Englishman, was published in 1996 and a book of literary parodies, Pistache, in 2006. Sebastian Faulks lives in London with his wife and their three children.

Review quote

That a literary novelist of Faulks's calibre should take on Fleming's mantle is a fitting tribute to one of Britain's greatest thriller writers. The Times
