Ten of the best breakfasts in literature

For the Guardian, John Mullan named ten of the best breakfasts in literature.

One breakfast on the list:
From Russia with Love, by Ian Fleming

James Bond's breakfast, supposed to demonstrate his fine taste, is a memorable exercise in prissiness. Coffee from De Bry in New Oxford Street, toast with Norwegian heather honey from Fortnum's, a single brown egg from a French Marans hen.
Read about the other breakfasts on the list.

From Russia with Love also made Mullan's lists of ten of the best chess games in fiction and ten of the best punch-ups in fiction.
