I’ve always found him to be really a representative of the contemporary era. After Gardner and Benson had followed Amis, there was a gap of six years until Sebastian Faulks was commissioned by Ian Fleming Publications to create a new Bond novel, which was released on 28 May 2008, the 1 hundredth anniversary of Ian Fleming’s birth.
I wanted to get back to the original Bond who’s dark and edgy, has fairly a sense of irony and humour and is really patriotic and prepared to sacrifice himself for Queen and country.

The book—entitled Devil May possibly Care—was published in the UK by Penguin Books and by Doubleday in the US. Fleming’s Bond is decidedly much less fashionable than his film counterpart, and his clothes selections incorporate a number of idiosyncrasies not readily apparent to modern readers. For example, Bond usually wears loafers (“moccasins”) with his business suits, which became widespread in the United States beginning in the 1970s and 1980s, but would have been uncommon in 1950s Britain.
