Product description


"One of the two or three novelists who really count" (V.S. Pritchett)

"A slim and curious tale" (The Times)

"At once Dickensian and new, an exploration of the soul of a young boy and a portrait of sad loving by memorable adults" (Chicago Tribune)

"In this short, skillful book we enter those disparate worlds Greene has made his own - the England of Brighton Rock and the exotic Central American territories in which his restless talent has so often roamed" (New York Times)

"A rattling good yarn. Under the spur of Greene's sharp, light touch, its narrative gallops along. Opening with a chase across a playground, rapidly followed by an abduction, it nimbly twists and turns through a maze of imposture, jewel robbery and fleeings from the law before leaping overseas for a final burst of international espionage, weapon-smuggling, freedom fighting and political murder" (Sunday Times)

He also wrote hundreds of essays, and film and book reviews. Graham Greene was a member of the Order of Merit and a Companion of Honour. He died in April 1991.
