Have just finished THE BOOK OF BOND, OR EVERY MAN HIS OWN 007, the lesser known of Kingsley Amis

Great quick read. I keep it with my bathroom library as the sections are just long enough to...well...keep one occupied, I guess you might say.

It's a great reminder of how well Amis had the character nailed down, and also a quick reference guide to the tastes of our favourite agent; be it food, drink, travel, or the ladies.

A little on the short side, but I think that Amis had to do it that way to keep the comic tone. Every man his own 007, indeed.
