you can't stop it. everyone's expendable, James. everyone's replaceable. even you. especially you. In a penetrating, violent, sexy, and often hilarious apocalypse, a world-famous superspy meets his demise at the hands of an audacious, painstaking poet. Kimmy Beach fuses popular culture and narrative poetry to astonishing effect in this, her fifth book. Feasting on the tropes, traps, and types of the James Bond mythos and doubling back on the incendiary narrative of Nikos Kazantzakis' The Last Temptation of Christ, Beach and her cast of loved-and-left Bond Girls dismantle the man and his mysteries. Fans of Beach's tenacious poetry and readers seeking redemption in explosive narrative and fearless wit will love The Last Temptation of Bond.
Kimmy Beach is the author of four collections of poetry. Her second book, Alarum Within, was adapted twice as a full-length stage play. She lives in Red Deer, Alberta.

Editorial Reviews

"This is Beach's most mature and sophisticated book yet and one that lends itself to different readings whether as entertainment, a feminist text, or a sophisticated play of intertextuality.... I woke with a smoker's cough and a vicarious hangover after reading these poems." FreeFall, Vol. XXIV, No. 1 - Bruce Hunter - FreeFall
