The Man Who Saved Britain, Paperback Book

Description

After victory in World War II, Britain was a relieved but also a profoundly traumatized country.

Simon Winder, born into this nation of uncertain identity, fell in love (as many before and since) with the man created as the antidote, a quintessentially British figure of great cultural significance: James Bond.

Written with passion, wit and a great deal of personal insight and affection, this book is his wildly amusing attempt to get to grips with Bond's legacy and the difficult decades in which it really mattered. `A more entertaining tour of 007, and the period associations that get sucked into Winder's great comic intelligence, is hard to imagine' London Review of Books `Diversions for the general reader and delights for the Bond enthusiast' Sunday Times `A delightfully quirky, immediately engaging book' Scotland on Sunday
