BOYD 007 BOOK EVENT

Author William Boyd is scheduled to discuss his new James Bond novel Solo and the literary tradition of Ian Fleming at a special Book Club event on October 28th at the Royal Institution of Great Britain. The talk follows the release of Boyd's Solo on September 26th. From the Guardian: "In a break from our usual format, William Boyd will join us for a special James Bond Book Club. He will talk to John Mullan about the genius of Ian Fleming and the enduring appeal of his iconic spy. He'll also introduce his new novel, Solo, the latest addition to the Bond series, set in 1969. Details of the plot are being kept tightly under wraps, but we are promised the essential Bond elements – cocktails, fast cars, sharp suits - in a tale spanning three continents as the veteran spy (he's 45) embarks on an unauthorized mission during a trip to America." Boyd famously included Ian Fleming as a character in his 2002 novel, Any Human Heart, which was adapted into a mini-series. Solo is his first James Bond thriller.
