Catching Bullets: Memoirs of a Bond FanWhen Jimmy O’Connell took a job as chauffeur for 007 producers Eon Productions, it would not just be Cubby Broccoli, Roger Moore and Sean Connery he would drive to James Bond – his grandson Mark swiftly hitched a metaphorical ride too.
In Catching Bullets: Memoirs of a Bond Fan, Mark O’Connell takes us on a humorous journey of filmic discovery where Bond films fire like bullets at a Thatcher era childhood, closeted adolescence and adult life as a comedy writer still inspired by that Broccoli movie magic.
Catching Bullets is a unique and sharply-observed love-letter to James Bond, Duran Duran title songs and bolting down your tea quick enough to watch Roger Moore falling out of a plane without a parachute.
“Catching Bullets is a wonderfully funny and touching memoir” – Barbara Broccoli, co-Producer of the James Bond films
