Kindle Edition of James Bond Unmasked Available

I’ve updated my book, James Bond Unmasked (Spies), to include a Skyfall chapter, an exclusive interview with Sam Mendes, and new Daniel Craig quotes from various press conferences. JBU is currently available in a Kindle edition and coming soon to Nook and other e-readers.

I chronicle the 50-year evolution of Ian Fleming’s iconic superspy on the big screen from the Cold War of the sixties to the current post-9/11 era. Featuring exclusive interviews with all six Bond actors: Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig.

Praise for James Bond Unmasked:

“An elegant orgy of all things Bond. As essential, cool, and satisfying as one of Mr. Bond’s martinis.” — William Joyce, the Oscar-winning animated short, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore 

“Replete with quotes from both actors and behind-the-scenes craftsmen, the book reads like a deluxe DVD extras reel. Desowitz’s commentary especially succeeds in putting each film in context within the series as a greater whole. But the true highlights of this work are the one-on-one interviews with each of the six Bond actors. Before you turn up your nose at actor interviews as just press-junket fluff, keep in mind that the author’s interview with Connery is the only time the surly Scot has broken his moratorium on Bond-related interviews since the ’80s, and Desowitz’s sit-down with Timothy Dalton is one of only two that actor has given since being unceremoniously replaced by Pierce Brosnan after only two films.” — Aaron Cooley, author of Shaken, Not Stirred

“The book is well written, well observed, rich, rewarding – a satisfying sense of summation or completion kicks in. The gang’s all here.” — Jeffrey Wells, Hollywood Elsewhere

“From Dr. No to Skyfall, James Bond Unmasked goes some way to revealing the process behind bringing the character to the screen and why Bond has remained so popular for the last 50 years. Desowitz’s insightful approach to the interviews allows each actor’s personality to shine through while managing to uncover previously unknown facts about the franchise.” — Chris Wright, WhatCulture!

“Bill Desowitz’ book is a great one, and definitely THE book to get if you want a unique possibility to know a little bit more about each of the six actors in one volume. Highly recommended.”   — Anders Frejdh, From Sweden with Love
