William Boyd takes James Bond back to 1960s in new 007 novel

Booker-nominated author William Boyd is taking on the mission to write a new James Bond novel.

The as-yet-untitled book will appear in 2013, the 60th anniversary of the super-spy’s first literary outing, in Ian Fleming’s Casino Royale.

Boyd has revealed that his story will mark a return to ”classic Bond” and will be set in the late 1960s.

He is the third author in recent years to be invited by the Ian Fleming estate to write an official Bond novel.

Before him came American thriller writer Jeffery Deaver, who penned Carte Blanche in 2011; and Sebastian Faulks, whose Devil May Care was published to mark Ian Fleming’s centenary in 2008.

Deaver’s book, released in May last year, is set in the present day and portrayed Bond as a Royal Naval Reserve veteran whose service included a tour of Afghanistan. It has sold over 160,000 copies to date and is out in paperback next month.

Sales of Carte Blanche in its opening week were about a third of those achieved by Faulks’ book in the same period.

Other writers to take on Fleming’s hero include John Gardner and Charlie Higson, author of the Young Bond books.

Ny James Bond 007 bok. James Bond-boken skriven av författaren William Boyd

19 Feb

I slutet av september kommer den nya James Bond-boken skriven av författaren William Boyd. Handlingen i den än så länge titellösa romanen utspelar sig 1969 och kretsar kring en 45-årig James Bond, skriver AFP.

Boyd är den tredje författaren under de senaste åren att få erbjudandet att skriva en Bond-roman. Jeffery Deaver skrev ”Carte Blanche” som gavs ut 2011 och Sebastian Faulks skrev ”I djävulens tjänst” som gavs ut 2008. Innan dess har även andra författare skrivit romaner om den kände spionen.

James Bond skapades av Ian Fleming som hann med 14 romaner innan han avled 1964.

The most popular song for the first dance at weddings, nr 3 Louis Armstrong – We Have All the Time in the World

19 Feb

 

Bryan Adams’ hit Everything I Do is the most popular song for the first dance at weddings, a survey has revealed.

The song, which was number one in the UK for a record 16 weeks in 1991, was the first choice of 5% of newlyweds.

The Carpenters came second with Close to You getting 3.9% of votes, followed by Louis Armstrong’s We Have All the Time in the World.

But 4% of those quizzed for the Lloyds TSB poll could not remember which song their first dance had been to.

                            TOP FIVE FIRST DANCES
1. Bryan Adams – Everything I Do
2. Carpenters – Close to You
3. Louis Armstrong – We Have All the Time in the World
4=. Elton John – Your Song
4=. Rod Stewart – Have I Told You Lately
Source: Lloyds TSB

     The poll, conducted to coincide with Saturday’s marriage of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles, also found 3% did not have a traditional first dance.

Rod Stewart’s Have I Told You Lately tied for fourth place with Sir Elton John’s Your Song.

More unusual choices included Meatloaf’s Bat Out of Hell and Aerosmith I Don’t Want To Miss a Thing, from the Armageddon soundtrack.

”This poll shows just how personal and emotional our musical choices are and demonstrates the important role music plays in all our lives,” Lloyds TSB’s Yasmin Hughes said.

”Clearly, our tastes vary wildly with even Meatloaf bringing a tear to the eye.”
