Publication of JAMES BOND: HOMME QUI SAUVA ANGLETERRE, the French version of Simon Winder's book The Man Who Saved Britain (2006).

Original synopsis in French:
James Bond naît en Jamaïque sous la plume de Ian Fleming en 1952, année de l'accession au trône de la reine Elisabeth. La guerre a mis à mal l'Angleterre. Son empire colonial se délite. Dans une monde bipolaire où ils ne mènent plus la danse, les Britanniques ont le moral en berne.

C'est alors qu'un sauveur apparaît : le célèbre espion des services secrets de sa Majesté. Pour ses aficionados, de plus en plus nombreux à chaque parution de roman et sortie de film, il incarne les fantasmes de la puissance perdue.
Avec un humour tout britannique, ce livre iconoclaste met en parallèle l'effondrement de l'empire et l'ascension fulgurante de 007. Après l'avoir lu, vous ne verrez plus jamais James Bond comme avant.

About the author:
Simon Winder was born in London 1963, earlier than planned because of the shock his mother felt after seeing "From Russia with Love" on the big screen. After a degree in History from Oxford University he is now an editor at Penguin where he published the entirety of James Bond.
