He admitted few to his closed circle and still fewer to any real friendship. Only one man knew Fleming from childhood and grew closer to him as the years passed. That man was Ivar Bryce. His memories of Fleming, always vivid and often hilarious, go back to their days at Eton . an observer in Fleming's romances, or risking huge stakes on the tables of Europe's casinos. In the war, their espionage activities brought them into frequent contact. It was Bryce who persuaded . Fleming that Jamaica was the place for him to live, and discovered the estate on which Fleming built his famous house, Goldeneye . a book written by one whose closeness to him was more that of a brother than a friend." - 644 004835
