The Folio Society Publish The Spy Who Loved Me

Nobody Does It Better than the Folio Society…

For this edition, The Folio Society has also reintroduced Ian Fleming’s original prologue, which had been removed from all modern editions of the text. In an unusual move by the author, this short introduction suggests that the manuscript had been left on his desk by Vivienne Michel, the book’s narrator.

The Spy Who Loved Me offers a fascinating look at the sexual politics of the early 1960s. At the time, Fleming was concerned to learn that his books were being read in schools and that children saw Bond as an unequivocal hero, rather than as an often ruthless and cold secret agent. It prompted him to write ‘a cautionary tale about Bond, to put the record straight in the minds particularly of younger readers’.

Fay Dalton’s atmospheric artwork continues to bring exquisite glamour and tension to the page of every volume. This edition features a series of daring illustrations that range from Michel and Bond’s romantic encounters to the blazing fire at Mr. Sanguinetti’s motel.
