But Amis roasts Americans as well and serves us familiar dishes, though in a piquant sauce: the precocious undergraduate author of a far-out novel, an earnest young priest, and an alcoholic literary agents nymphomaniacal wife. They are all presented with glee and gusto and the keenest wit, butit is Roger Micheldene, at once a prototype of the insufferable Englishman and an individual with sufficient humour to win our sneaking sympathy, who dominates a supremely entertaining comedy of bad manners."

"Lunch at Scott's, a quiet game of golf, a routine social call on his chief M, convalescing in his Regency house in Berkshire - the life of secret agent James Bond has begun to fall into a pattern tha t threatens complacency until the sunny afternoon when M is kidnapped andhis house staff savagely murdered.The action ricochets across the globe to a volcanic Greek island where the glacial, malign Colonel Sun Liang-tan of the People's Liberation Army of China collaborates with an ex-nazi atrocit y expert in a world-menacing conspiracy. Bond finds himself working in alliance with the beautiful tawny-blonde agent of a rival secret service in thestruggle to overpower this ruthless enemy who discards the unwritten rules of espionage. Stripped of all professional aids, Bond faces unarmed the mo nstrous devices of Colonel Sun in a test that brings him to the verge of his physical endurance. Incredibly, the author adds his own imaginative impetus to the Bond saga yet preserves all the excitement and eloquence, the pace and glitter of a vintage Fleming novel." (from the dj).

216 AMIS, Kingsley]. TANNER, William ('Bill'), Lt.-Col. HAWKEY, Raymond, design TANNER, William Book of Bond or Every Man His Own 007. First Edition in dustjacket

[AMIS, Kingsley]. TANNER, William ('Bill'), Lt.-Col. The Book of Bond or Every Man His Own 007. London : Jonathan Cape, (1965). First Edition. Pp (6),7-111,(1). Illustrated. 8vo, black cloth, gilt, blue and red lettering to spine. Gohn, Kingsley Amis : A Checklist. II: A24. See Jon Gilbert, Ian Fleming : The Bibliography p.634, &c. Designed by Raymond Hawkey, photography by Ken Denyer. "With reversible bookjacket for work in the field." The reverse of the bookjacket identifies the book as "The Bible Revised to be Read as Literature." Contents : Foreword; Drink; Food; Smokes; Looks; Exercise; Clothes; Accessories; Cars; Places; Chat; Culture; Gambling; M; Girls; Research; Sources. "Bill Tanner's distinguished wartime carepr in the Sappers ended in 1944 when he was wounded in the course of a sabotage operation. He later served on the secretariat to the Chiefs of Staff Committee, but, he says, retained his sense of numour. He still retains some of it after twelve years as M's Number Two. He is 007's best friend in the Service and at least once (in 1956) has been bought luncheon by him at Scott's in Piccadilly. (They had dressed crab and black velvet he remembers.) Although Bill is theauthor of several hundred official minutes ana memoranda this is the first work of his to appear publicly and between hard covers." (from front flap of the dj). "James Bond reigns supreme among the glamorous figures of this phase of our civilization. Only the dull of soul, or the over-eighties and under-fives (or those of us who are women), can have escaped the desire to borrow his glory, to become like him in the eyes of the world, especially that part of the world which consists of women. But in the past most of us have been discouraged from actually joining the 00 Section of the Secret Service by the thougnt that the dangers outweigh the rewards. Now all this haschanged. William Tanner, for years a colleague of Bond's and so naturally a keen student of his exploits, gives detailed instruction on how to be as glamorous as Bond without having to be kicked in the shins with poisoned shoes or nibbled by sharks. This complete and authoritative guide to 007ship tells you what to wear, what and how to eat and drink and smoke, how to be the scourge of the casino without actually doing any gambling, what devicesto install in your car, how to recognize the kind of girl a 007 should go for, etc. etc. By careful study of The Book of Bond, plus a modest outlay of time and money, even you can be your own 007." (from the back panel of the dj). Bill Tanner is a fictional character in the James Bond film and novel series. The author is actually Kingsley Amis.
