With a new introduction by Robert Macfarlane
Graham Greene was born in 1904. He worked as a journalist and critic, and in 1940 became literary editor of the Spectator. He was later employed by the Foreign Office. As well as his many novels, Graham Greene wrote several collections of short stories, four travel books, six plays, three books of autobiography, two of biography and four books for children. 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.
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
A masterly storyteller... An enormously popular writer who was also one of the most significant novelists of his time
Graham Greene had wit and grace and character and story and a transcendent universal compassion that places him for all time in the ranks of world literature
