James Bond fans are legion on both sides of the Channel, however most are unaware of the crucial role France played in Ian Fleming’s life. Moreover, thousands of French references are identifiable in much of his work, and it is no coincidence that numerous Bond girls have been played by French actresses.
Pierre-Olivier Lombarteix is a French lecturer, specialist in the English speaking world. He is a big fan of the spy novel genre and in particular anything featuring James Bond, being the author of La France de Fleming. This upcoming Talk aims to give an alternative vision of Flemings cinematic and fiction works exploring the many references to France and French culture.
