Quote of the Day


Welsh-born thriller writer Ken Follett (born this day in 1949) paid tribute to one of his great literary inspirations and his greatest character ...

"Ian Fleming is the best. The spy novel is about a hundred years old and it really peaked with Ian Fleming - he was the greatest writer of the mainstream, popular spy story. Fleming said that he had been influenced by John Buchan … but of course, Fleming brought a completely different atmosphere to the genre. It was much more liberated, much more sensual. Buchan’s stories were rather like schoolboy heroics, and James Bond was a real grown up."

"It was often said about James Bond that he exploited women because he was promiscuous, but I thought he was a romantic. He really cherished women and he often risked his life to protect them."
