The Man with the Golden Typewriter: Ian Fleming's James Bond Letters edited by Fergus Fleming
I've been interested in Ian Fleming since reading about his role in Naval Intelligence during WWII. When NetGalley offered this collection of letters, I was interested, but certainly didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did.
Nor did I expect to find Fleming, the man, so likable and charming, so generous, and so appreciative and kind to his fans. The man who wrote thrillers was friends with Evelyn Waugh, Noel Coward, Somerset Maugham, and Raymond Chandler.
Fleming biographical info.
I had never heard of the Studillac before reading the letters, so I had to Google to discover that the Studillac was a studebaker with a cadillac engine.
