A master of twentieth century fiction, Graham Greene looks back on his life. This volume also includes several key interviews from throughout his long, fruitful career.
Graham Greene (1904-1991) was born in Berkhamsted, England, the son of a school headmaster and part of the family that also owned the Greene King brewery empire. Quickly discovering his love for the written word, he found work as a critic, reporter, novelist and occasional MI6 operative - a career which took him around the world to locations including Mexico, Sierra Leone, Vietnam, Haiti and Cuba. Many of these would appear as settings for his fated 'Greeneland' novels. He enjoyed huge success in his lifetime, with works such as Brighton Rock and The End of the Affair cementing his reputation as a master of both popular and literary forms; many of his novels were adapted into films. He died in Switzerland in 1991.
