uncle, aunt,elephant logoOne more Bond book begins serialisation in the School Edition. Just when I feel like I know every aunt and uncle of the author’s, on a first-name basis, he pulls yet more relatives out of his memory…each more eccentric that the previous lot.

When an author writes in the first person, you’re dying to know which episodes are fact and which fiction. So reading up on his other books, I discovered his stories about moving to the UK as a young man, and how miserable he was in grey London. Reminded me of Gerald Durrell and family who were similarly depressed when returning to England from India.
