This is probably unavailable online (behind a paywall, anyway), but there's an amusing interview with William Boyd in today's Times magazine, and an extract from the first chapter which is pretty sound stuff.

 

(If anyone does find it online, please don't reproduce it all here - we don't have permission).

Great find, Jim! Will have to make a trip to the train station or the airport later...

I recall the Times' initial serialization of Devil May Care, and being surprisingly underwhelmed, given the hype.  Solo hasn't received nearly as much buildup, but this looks promising.

It is indeed behind a pay wall so I haven't read it, but what you said here is all I need. :)

Some kind soul has reprinted the entire Times interview here: http://jimidisu.com/?p=3842

Boyd comes off well, though the interviewer is a smug dunce.
