Can it really be true

that the Bond theme music began life as a sitar-backed song for a never-realized musical based on V.S. Naipaul's A House for Mr. Biswas?!? At the Times, Michiko Kakutani enjoys Simon Winder's book (it really does sound quite delightful, surely it's one of those good double-purpose buy-it-for-an-Xmas-present-but-quickly-read-it-first-myself-type presents) The Man Who Saved Britain: A Personal Journey into the Disturbing World of James Bond. Who could resist a book with that title?
