Field Report: Jeffrey Deaver, Author of ‘Carte Blanche’

Which is your favorite of the Carte Blanche dust jackets?

I do like the Simon & Schuster cover with the large 007 on the front, which is the jacket from the American edition of the book. The UK edition is also great, just a bit more subtle.

Which is your favorite Ian Fleming Bond novel?

Love them all, but a big fan of From Russia, With Love.

What is your favorite Chopping cover?

I think his Goldfinger cover was amazing.


What is on your literary 007 wish list?

Well, aside from the cars and women–hmm…that’s a tough question! Let’s just say “cars” and “women!”

When did you read your first Bond novel and what was it?

I was about eleven or twelve when I first read From Russia, With Love. My parents were big Ian Fleming fans and I fell in love with the books when they read them.
