A 1964 Ian Fleming Interview of Note

In researching my book, I came across an interview that Ian Fleming did with
John Cruesemann of The London Express just before the author left for Jamaica in 1964.Screen Shot 2020-07-07 at 11.12.08 AM

The real James Bond and his wife would drop in unexpectedly at Goldeneye less than three weeks later.

There are lots of great quotes in the interview, but my favorites include calling Mary Bond "the real Mrs. James Bond" and calling the real Bond himself as "a distinguished American ornithologist, a splendid chap, I believe."

You can download the complete interview, which ran in The Pittsburgh Press, here:
