ROGER MOORE: A BIENTOT... (UK HARDCOVER)

Roger Moore A Bientot
À bientôt - the fourth book written by the late Sir Roger Moore (which the great man finished only a few weeks before his passing) following My Word Is My Bond (published in 2009), Bond On Bond (2012) and Last Man Standing (2014) - is published in the UK by Michael O'Mara on 7th September 2017.

In this warm and engaging book, the late, great Sir Roger Moore reflects on life and ageing.

Delivered, along with his own hand-drawn sketches, to his publisher shortly before he passed away, in À Bientôt, Roger looks back on his life – and gives it his trademark sideways glance, too. Nostalgic, funny, charming and, most importantly, very human, his reflections on age and ageing encompass all aspects of this universal experience, from reminiscences on childhood and ‘what might have been’; keeping abreast of the ever-changing times; senior moments, memory and getting to grips with technology; the joys – and frustrations – of travel; work and play. Along with these he tells of the intense happiness – and some equally intense sadnesses – of family life.

Featuring his own sketches throughout, this book sees Roger at his most open and forthright. The true stories and situations he shares in this warm and intimate book reveal a ‘Bond Unbound’, the human being inside the action-adventure character that made him so famous the world over.

Always upbeat and – as ever – endearingly self-effacing and unpretentious, in À bientôt he shares the joys he experienced every day along with the tiny triumphs that life brings to us all at the most unexpected times.

About Sir Roger Moore:
Sir Roger Moore KBE had an extraordinary career that spanned seven decades, from early television to the golden age of Hollywood and on to international superstardom. Dashing, handsome and every inch the archetypal English gentleman, he was unforgettable as The Saint, as Lord Brett Sinclair in The Persuaders and, of course, as James Bond, making seven blockbusting films as arguably the most debonair of the 007s.
