'My Name's Bond, James Bond' : An Anthology of Quotes from Ian Fleming's James Bond Novels
'She looked sharply up at him. 'And who might you be?' 'My name's Bond, James Bond'. This book celebrates the greatest of all post-war British fictional icons. For too long the films of the Bond novels have overshadowed their literary source - the bizarre, baroque imagination of Ian Fleming. Full rein is given in this anthology to Fleming's wonderful creations - the magically deranged villains, their appalling sidekicks and their surreal lairs, from Dr No's guano island to Blofeld's Garden of Death. Fleming emerges too from this book as a remarkable writer on nature (albeit nature of a purely malevolent variety) and as an inventor of extraordinarily imagined set pieces - the source of the films' enormous successes.
