Meet WWII spy Ian Lemming in #MeToo take on James Bond


Fans of 007 have been waiting since last April to see the 25th James Bond film. The release of "No Time to Die" and Daniel Craig's last mission keeps being delayed because of Covid-19 and cinema closures. Not to fret though, as we have a brilliant new secret agent book to recommend for you: "The Spy Who Inspired Me" from best-selling British author Stephen Clarke. 


The Paris-based writer of "A Year in the Merde" and "1000 Years of Annoying the French" speaks to Eve Jackson about the role of female spies in the war, how we'll look back at Brexit and why there's scepticism in France about the Covid-19 vaccine.
