With two stories set entirely in France and more than a thousand French references in the whole of Fleming’s work, the country clearly plays an essential role in the James Bond saga.
Yet to date, no study has considered the place France occupies, both in Fleming’s work and life. This book, prefaced by the president of the French James Bond Club, and illustrated by Floc’h, seeks to put that right.
Based on a detailed analysis of Fleming’s writing, historical background and family history, this study approaches James Bond from a new and surprising
angle. The result is a well-documented and accessible book that will meet the expectations of the general public as well as those of the large community of James Bond fans.
