Award Thursdays: Ian Fleming

Post by: Snehith Kumbla

His name was Fleming, Ian Fleming (1908-1964) and he was a British naval officer of intelligence, a journalist and a writer. Most writers begin to write a book or a set of stories about what they know and Fleming was no exception. Sometime in 1952 he wrote Casino Royale, the first James Bond novel, a product of his own life and imagination.


The first novel brought the writer a cascade of work; as he went on to pen eleven more Bond novels. The Bond books were published between 1953 and 1966, two of them posthumously - The Living Daylights and The Man with the Golden Gun and Octopussy. Before succumbing to heart disease, which was a result of years of heavy smoking and drinking, Fleming also wrote the memorable children’s book that was made into an equally famous movie of the same name, titled: Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang, a story that involved a magical car.
