    [Goldeneye] E–pub ë Matthew Parker I cannot heap too many superlatives on this multifaceted book It is a gem that far surpasses the expectation of simply being a book for James Bond fansThe book isn't neatly pigeon holed as a biography of Ian Fleming the creator of James Bond While Fleming is at the heart of the book it is so much richer deeper

Goldeneye Download è PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Matthew Parker ¿ 4 Read For two months every year from 1946 to his death eighteen years later Ian Fleming lived at Goldeneye the house he built on a point of high land overlooking a small white sand beach on Jamaica's stunning north coast All the James Bond novels and stories were written here This book explores the huge influence of Jamaica on the creation of Fleming's iconic p. After Andrew Lycett s exhaustive biography of Ian Fleming which is 20 years old believe it or not you may wonder what is left to learn of James Bond s creatorIn his new book Goldeneye Matthew Parker proves there is uite a bit left to learn Unlike the works of Lycett and John Pearson which remain the two indispensable Fleming biographies Parker s book is not a straightforward life story He instead focuses on Fleming s love for Jamaica and the vacation home he built there Goldeneye Pearson and Lycett certainly acknowledge that Jamaica was a major part of Fleming s life but Parker has time and space to devote to the author s time in Jamaica and he unearths aspects of the man not found by previous biographersFleming first visited Jamaica during a conference in World War II while he worked for British naval intelligence Before leaving he told his friend Ivar Bryce who would later figure in one of the biggest dramas of Fleming s life that he would buy a home on the island where he would vacation and write That home would become Goldeneye on Jamaica s north coast near Oracabessa When Fleming secured a London journalism job after the war he insisted upon and received two months paid vacation per year when I was a teenager reading about Fleming I found nothing remarkable about this Today I wonder at his power of persuasion Fleming would spend those two months from January to March at Goldeneye Parker details Fleming s life for those two months out of the year remarkably pinpointing Fleming s locations and activities during his time in Jamaica In some ways it is a biography of two months at a time each chapter usually focusing on a single yearParker also delves into Jamaican history pertinent to the island s hold on Fleming Britain lost India shortly after the Second World War but in the late 1940s and early 50s Jamaica seemed a sunny friendly outpost of the British Empire something that appealed to the nostalgic imperialist Fleming and provided the perfect spot for him to create his imperialist hero James BondAlthough Fleming hinted at the end of the war he wanted to write a spy novel he did not start banging away on his typewriter until his 1952 visit to Jamaica This coincided with his impending marriage to his longtime mistress Ann pregnant at the time and Fleming often blamed premarital jitters for the creation of Bond But Parker finds evidence that Fleming was ready to write Casino Royale that winter regardless of his fleeting bachelorhoodThe portrait of the resulting marriage is familiar from Lycett s biography Ian and Ann Fleming were two people who loved each other deeply yet seemed addicted to damaging each other In Parker s book Goldeneye itself becomes an obstacle between them after Ann begins to loathe Jamaica and refuses to vacation there with her husband This allows Fleming to begin an affair with Blanche Blackwell a celebrated member of Jamaica s north coast society and it is hard to dispute a sympathetic partner for Fleming By this point Ann Fleming already was having a widely recognized affair with British politician Hugh GaitskillParker looks at the writing of each Bond book and the circumstances that surround their inception He pays closest attention to the three books set in Jamaica Live and Let Die Doctor No and The Man With the Golden Gun and how the island s shifting political situation is reflected in each titleParker s book is deeply researched but highly readable a uality it shares with Pearson s biography Dozens of books have been written about Fleming and Bond but new insights are hard to come by any Parker s Goldeneye is filled with them It is a worthy supplement to Pearson s and Lycett s thicker volumes

I love reading about Jamaica and I can t get enough of the unlikely friendship between Fleming and Noel Coward so I thoroughly enjoyed this book which places the Bond novels in the context of what s happening both in Jamaica and in Fleming s private life Five stars just for the photo of Coward with Sean Connery honestly
