U.S. 'Devil May Care' paperback released in two versions

The bestselling Centenary Bond novel Devil May Care by Sebastian Faulks is released in paperback today in the U.S. In what is a first for a Bond novel, consumers have a choice of getting the book as mass market paperback or a larger trade edition. The books have different cover art -- which means any self-respecting Bond obsessive will be getting both, of course!

Set in 1967, Devil May Care finds James Bond in action in France, Iran, and Russia.


  1. Damn you. :) When I read this I thought no way would I buy both versions. I am a fan boy but I have my limits. especially since DMC while better(much better in some cases)is a better book than the Fleming purist who started bashing it BEFORE it was released would have you believe it still was a something of a disappointment.

    But I underestimated myself. I now have 3 copies of a book that I originally judged to be no better than a B- effort. Maybe I should read it again.

    Love the blog it's very informative on the literary bond.

  2. Thank you, Count. Happy to contribute to your addiction. ;)

    I actually own 15 copies of the book.
