The things I love about biographies - authoriZed or not, is the photos. This is one strangely pitched authoriZed biography - one of a fictional character.... just who was James Bond when he was at home... has no photos.... did James Bond even exist when he was at home? Sounds very Auster. Fits in fabulously with this collection of pulpy sixties paperbacks of the Ian Fleming novels that inspired the films.
