Bond Behind the Iron Curtain by James Fleming
The Book Collector presents an astonishing new book in hardback, Bond Behind the Iron Curtain by James Fleming, Ian Fleming's nephew. The book features 128 pages with 16 illustrations and is now available exclusively for FSWL readers at 16.50 GBP plus postage (normally 25 GBP plus postage).

The story starts with the full-page attack on James Bond, Ian Fleming and the film of Dr. No (1962) that appeared in Izvestiya even before the film had been released. The whole Bond phenomenon is attacked as pornography, capitalist filth and anti-socialist poison.

Here, translated into English for the first time, you will also find the long Russian critique of the Bond films by Maja Turovskaya published in 1966, and the extremely interesting account that appeared in Prague the following year of Sean Connery’s rise to fame. A bonus is the Bulgarian attempt to publish a novel inwhich Bond was killed.

If you want to know about the ‘bourgeois inferiority complex’ that was the standard party line to mock anyone who enjoyed the adventures of James Bond, this is the place to start – the only place, as it happens.
