Product description


"The most ingenious, inventive and exciting of our novelists, rich in exactly etched and moving portraits of real human beings" (V. S. Pritchett The Times)

"Greene was a master of characterisation and this book is no exception" (Independent on Sunday)

"In a class by himself - the ultimate chronicler of twentieth-century man's consciousness and anxiety" (William Golding Independent)

"A superb storyteller with a gift for provoking controversy" (New York Times)

"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)
