Bond by the Book
This has been the year of 007 with all things James Bond being celebrated in honour of the spy’s 50 years of film. Openly gay comedy writer Mark O’Connell pens a love-letter of sorts to the spy in his Splendid Books release Catching Bullets: Memoirs of a Bond Fan. The novel is a humorous journey of his filmic discovery where Bond films fire like bullets at a Thatcher-era childhood, closeted adolescence up to his adult life as a writer and offers a unique look at a familiar topic. www.splendidbooks.co.uk.
