Sebastian Faulks To Write James Bond Book

July 24, 2007

Bestselling British author Sebastian Faulks has been tapped by the estate of Ian Fleming to write the next James Bond novel. According to the London Guardian, “The book, Devil May Care, will be published next May and is set in 1967, when ‘Bond is damaged, ageing and in a sense it is the return of the gunfighter for one last heroic mission.’ Faulks said. His own interpretation of the spy, he hinted, would show all the caddishness of Bond’s previous incarnations, tempered with just a shade of new-mannish sensitivity.'” Faulks’ other books include Charlotte Gray, Birdsong, and Engleby–due out in September.
