What do we know about the real Ian Fleming?
The source for most of the following is the excellent Ian Fleming -The Man Behind James Bond by Andrew Lycett.
BEFORE WORLD WAR II
1. William Plomer's Turbott Wolfe was published in 1925.
In this novel, the homosexual Plomer tackled gay relationships.
The teenage Ian Fleming was so impressed by Turbot Wolfe that he wrote a fan letter to the author.
Ian and the gay William Plomer became very close friends. (Lycett)
2. Ian Fleming attended Eton, the all boys private school. Some poems he wrote there are signed with the 'sexually ambiguous name Cary Anan'. (Lycett)
3. After Eton, Ian Fleming studied in Austria.
He decided to translate the text of Anja and Esther, a play by Klaus Mann, the homosexual son of Thomas Mann, the author of Death in Venice .
Anja and Esther was Ian's first publication. (Lycett)
Ian's favourite book was The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann.
4. In Austria, Ian found that a number of young women threw themselves at him.
He wrote in his notebook about how these heterosexual couplings of Austrians with Anglo-Saxons could be 'so distasteful'.
Ian hiked in the Austrian hills with his male friends.
Sometimes they spent a couple of nights in Alpine huts. (Lycett)
5. In the summer of 1929 Ian and his mother were on holiday in Corsica. Ian met up with two homosexuals with whom he passed the time playing bridge. (Lycett)
6. Back in London, while strolling down Bond Street, Ian spotted, in the window of a bookshop, a book of poetry entitled Pansies.
Ian entered the bookshop to make enquiries about the book. (Lycett)
7. In 1935 Ian went to work as a stockbroker with the firm of Rowe and Pitman in London.
Lancy Hugh Smith, the firm's senior partner was a bachelor.
Lancy got on well with Ian who was good at charming older men.
One former colleague of Ian's described Ian as being 'a hell of a tart'. (Lycett)
8. In his late twenties, Ian was still living at home with his 'overbearing' mother.
Eventually he bought a central London flat. (Lycett)
9. One of Ian's female friends was Lady Mary Pakenham.
According to Lady Mary, Ian was feminine and nervous and he often had a look of melancholy and loss.
According to Lady Mary, "the average girl simply did not like him."
At parties, Ian would initiate a conversation with a put-down. (Lycett)
10. In some of Ian's erotic fantasies, there were schoolmistresses who whipped people.
According to Lycett, Ian had a large collection of books about flagellation. (Lycett)
THE WAR YEARS
11. During World War II, Ian worked for Naval Intelligence.
12. At this time, two of Ian's friends were Ann O'Neill, who strongly fancied Ian, and Sefton Delmer, an expert on black propaganda.
According to Ann, Delmer "rouses all Ian's brain mania, plus his sublimated homosexualism." (Lycett)
On the subject of marriage, Ian told a friend Peter Smithers: "I can't see anything in it for me." (Lycett)
Ian was eventually persuaded or manipulated into marrying Ann when he was aged 43. It was not a happy marriage.
