Review

"No serious writer of this century has more thoroughly invaded and shaped the public imagination than did Graham Greene" (The Time)

"A superb storyteller" (New York Times)

"Graham Greene taught us to understand the social and economic cripples in our midst. He taught us to look at each other with new eyes. I don't suppose his influence will ever disappear" (Auberon Waugh Independent)

"A masterly storyteller... An enormously popular writer who was also one of the most significant novelists of his time" (Newsweek)

"One of our greatest authors... Greene had the sharpest eyes for trouble, the finest nose for human weaknesses, and was pitilessly honest in his observations... For experience of a whole century he was the man within" (Norman Sherry Independent)

Arriving anonymously at a Congo leper village, he is diagnosed as the mental equivalent of a 'burnt-out case', a leper who has gone through a stage of mutilation. However, as Querry loses himself in work for the lepers his disease of mind slowly approaches a cure. Then the white community finds out who Querry is...
