SOLO paperback released in the UK

Today sees the release of the UK paperback edition of Solo by William Boyd. This latest James Bond continuation novel finds 007 in action in Africa and Washington D.C. in 1969. The book was released last year by Jonathan Cape in the UK. This paperback is released by Vintage. Very nice.



You can read my review of Solo HERE. The U.S. paperback from Harper will be released next month.

  1. Are there two different versions? Besides the one you link to, there's also a separate ISBN listed with different dimensions:

    1. Yeah, that appears to be an international export version of some kind.

  2. Hm. The cover for this paperback edition of "Solo" really bring back memories from the cover of the britisk first hardcover edition of Raymond Benson's "Zero Minus Ten"....

    1. They are very similar. Maybe I should post a side by side.
