‘Smart, analytical and enormously good fun’ Stuart Maconie, Mail on Sunday
‘Ingenious...conjures a whole cultural history of the past six decades’ The Spectator

Dr No, the first Bond film, and ‘Love Me Do’, the first Beatles record, were released on the same day. Most countries can only dream of creating a phenomenon on this scale; Britain produced two on one windy October afternoon.
Told over sixty dramatic years, Love and Let Die is the story of two culture touchstones that continue to define our aspirations and fantasies; of opposing values, visions of Britain and ideas about male identity; and of how a clash between working class liberation and establishment control exploded on the global stage.
