The novel that I love the most is The Quiet American -- Ian McEwan

There has been no novel of any political scope about Vietnam since Graham Greene wrote The Quiet AmericanHarper's

A master of storytelling ― The Times

One of the finest writers of any language ― Washington Post

A superb storyteller - he had a talent for depicting local colour, a keen sense of the dramatic, an eye for dialogue, and skill in pacing his prose ― New York Times

Book Description

'A great writer who spoke brilliantly to a whole generation. Prophet-like' Alec Guinness
