Secret Affairs and Secret Agents – The Ian Fleming Files


James Bond creator Ian Fleming shared a 20-year correspondence with his wife Ann, which chronicled the intensity of their early secret love affair, through the phenomenal success of the Bond novels to the final years of their marriage. In this episode of Expert Voices, get the inside track on the largely unpublished letters from Ian’s step-daughter Fionn Morgan who describes the erotically charged relationship with her mother, the meteoric rise of Bond and paints a vivid picture of high society in the post-war world. Comprising over 160 letters written by both Ian and Ann, the correspondence will be offered as part of Sotheby’s upcoming online sale of English Literature, History, Rock and Pop, Children’s Books and Illustrations (3 – 10 December).
