Bond To Be Middle-Aged; Which Characters Will Appear in William Boyd’s Novel?
The next James Bond novel will see an aged version of the super-spy, who has a more realistic love life.
William Boyd intends to explore Bond as a human being with more realistic viewpoint.
“He is a middle-aged man, a middle-aged spy, and that’s one of the things that interests me,” Boyd said. The currently untitled novel is set in 1969 where James Bond will be 45 years old.
Although Q will not be appearing in the novel, M and Miss Moneypenny will both be making appearances.
William Boyd’s Bond novel will be published in Fall 2003.
