Fresh from William Boyd’s own lips: his James Bond continuation scheduled for autumn 2013 is titled… ‘Solo’!
On top of the title William Boyd revealed a couple of intriguing details about his work on this James Bond continuation at the London Book Fair interview. While having tremendous fun writing ‘Solo’ Boyd assured interviewer Erica Wagner that he took his task most seriously and read Fleming’s originals in order to prepare himself for this. One of the advantages of his chosen setting in 1969 was the absence of mobile phones, as the advent of high-tech in Boyd’s view made thriller writing much more difficult. Consequently Boyd states his book will be a real spy story of the era, and will see Bond operating in real-life places in Europe, Africa and the United States.
