Amazon.com is currently listing a new book entitled The Everyday Drinking: The Distilled Kingsley Amis, due for release in May of next year.
Amis is best known by James Bond fans for his one and only continuation novel in the literary 007 canon, 1968’s Colonel Sun. In addition, Amis also wrote 1965’s The James Bond Dossier, which was a critical analysis of the Ian Fleming Bond novels and The Book Of Bond Or, Every Man His Own 007, published under the pseudonym ‘Lt Col. William (‘Bill’) Tanner.’
While there are no publication blurbs offering any specific details on The Everyday Drinking: The Distilled Kingsley Amis yet, amazon lists Amis and Christopher Hitchens as the authors. Hitchens provided the introduction to the 2002 UK Penguin omnibus collection of From Russia with Love, Dr. No and Goldfinger.
The Everyday Drinking: The Distilled Kingsley Amis will be published by Bloomsbury USA on 13 May 2008. CommanderBond.net will keep you updated as further details are revealed.
