Way back in October 2008, CommanderBond.net first reported on a brand new James Bond book from author Christopher Lindner: Revisioning 007: James Bond and Casino Royale.
Originally due out in May/June 2009 in both the UK and US, the release dates came and went, but the book oddly never hit store bookshelves. Whatever the case for the delays may have been, it now appears that literary 007 fans will finally have a chance to pick up this book later this year as a new release date as just been posted on Amazon.com.
1 September is the new release date for the Bond title from Wallflower Press and pre-orders are currently being taken at Amazon.com (no new updates on Amazon UK as of yet).
The publication blurb for Revisioning 007: James Bond and Casino Royale follows below:
Revisioning 007: James Bond and Casino Royale
Revisioning 007 is a lively collection of new essays on the reinvention of James Bond in the 2006 film Casino Royale, starring Daniel Craig in his first appearance as Agent 007. Treating Casino Royale as a case study in popular film culture and as a significant turning point in the 007 series, the book offers innovative readings of the film and its inte-rrelations with the Bond franchise, the culture industry and recent developments in cinema, society and world politics.
Essay topics range from the analysis of 007’s masochism, voyeurism and hyper-mobility, to the examination of the film’s testicular torture scene, the links between international politics and high-stakes gambling and the changing role of the secret agent in a post-9/11 world order.
