Review: Live and Let Die by Ian Fleming
If Bond can find out what Mr. But while investigating Mr. Big in Harlem, it becomes very clear that Bond and Leiter got more than they bargained for—even with an assist from Mr. They end up hightailing it for Florida to check out Mr. Big is African American and all of his agents are as well, but Fleming makes a curious assumption that all black people are impressionable enough to fall under Mr. According to this book literally every black person must be treated with suspicion because they could become an agent of Mr.
Fleming wrote the novel at his Goldeneye estate in Jamaica before his first book, Casino Royale , was published; much of the background came from Fleming's travel in the US and knowledge of Jamaica. Bond becomes involved in the US through Mr Big's smuggling of 17th-century gold coins from British territories in the Caribbean. The novel deals with the themes of the ongoing East-West struggle of the Cold War , including British and American relations, Britain's position in the world, race relations, and the struggle between good and evil. The initial print run of 7, copies quickly sold out and a second print run was ordered within the year. US sales, when the novel was released there a year later, were much slower. Following a comic strip adaptation in —59 by John McLusky in the Daily Express , the novel was adapted in as the eighth film in the Eon Productions Bond series and the first to star Roger Moore as Bond.
Big is a notorious Harlem gangster who has been hoarding and running pirate gold in illegal operations.
