About the Author

Ian Fleming

Ian Lancaster Fleming was born in London in 1908. His first job was at Reuters news agency after which he worked briefly as a stockbroker before working in Naval Intelligence during the Second World War. His first novel, Casino Royale, was published in 1953 and was an instant success. Fleming went on to write twelve other Bond books as well as two works of non-fiction and the children’s classic Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The Bond books have sold over sixty million copies and earned praise from figures such as Raymond Chandler who called Fleming ‘the most forceful and driving writer of thrillers in England’ and President Kennedy who named From Russia with Love as one of his favourite books. The books inspired a hugely successful series of film adaptations which began in 1961 with the release of Dr No, starring Sean Connery as 007. Fleming was married to Anne Rothermere with whom he had a son, Caspar. He died in 1964.

Praise for Goldfinger

“Nobody else does this sort of thing as well as Mr. Fleming...it offers more passages of sustained excitement than we are likely to get from any other thriller this year”

Sunday Times

“The plot of Goldfinger is hugely enjoyable and moves with breakneck speed…Then there's the style, hard-edged and laconic. The overview, then, might be of a superbly written, fast-paced and entertaining thriller ... pulp fiction with wonderful characters and unforgettable scenes that pop up throughout the oeuvre”

Telegraph

“Mr Fleming is the best thriller writer since Buchan”

Evening Standard

“Highly entertaining”

New York Times
