Curtis Brown to represent Ian Fleming Estate
27.06.11 | Charlotte Williams
Ian Fleming Publications has appointed Jonny Geller and Curtis Brown as the literary agents worldwide for the Ian Fleming James Bond novels as well as future Bond literary works, taking over from Simon Trewin at United Agents.
IFPL m.d. Corinne Turner said: "In these changing times, it is important that there is a co-ordinated representation of the Ian Fleming Bond novels and our new 007 projects worldwide, and we are very excited by the prospect of working with a literary agency that combines over one hundred years of experience with such a bright, enthusiastic and forward-thinking team."
Curtis Brown books division m.d. Jonny Geller said: "This is a huge honour for our agency. Ian Fleming is quite simply one of the world’s most successful and well-managed literary estates. The aim for us is clear: to marshall all of Curtis Brown’s resources to bring a new generation of readers to Ian Fleming’s work. By using the specialist skills of different agents within Curtis Brown we intend to build on the wonderful work that the Fleming company has already achieved."
Trewin refused to comment when contacted by The Bookseller.
Recent Bond novels have been written by Jeffery Deaver and Sebastian Faulks, with the Young Bond series penned by Charlie Higson. Curtis Brown will also represent the Bond novels written by Kingsley Amis, John Gardner and Raymond Benson.
