Well done to author Mike Ripley who's arranged for his friend Len Deighton to pen a short blog post on the late Ray Hawkey in the latest edition of Getting Away With Murder, on the Shots website.
Deighton, who seems in fine fettle judging by the recent photo included, talks about the wonderful designs and innovations Ray brought not only to his works, but also to other novels. The extent of that detail is bought home in the story about the miniature champagne bottles used to market Close-Up to book sellers. I thought I knew pretty much everything about all the ephemera associated with Deighton's books, but this was a new one for me.
This is a blog about the books, film and world of British thriller and spy novel author Len Deighton, writer of The Ipcress File, Funeral in Berlin, SS-GB, Bomber, Berlin Game and many other books. This blog also covers the spy thriller genre and the Cold War more widely. It is a companion website to the main Deighton Dossier archive (link on the right). It is the only website + blog endorsed by the author himself! Content (c) Rob Mallows 2008-22 unless otherwise stated.
