About this book


This book sets out the most significant aspects of Graham Greene's achievement as a novelist of ideas and commitments and as a great storyteller and artist in prose. Readings of the major novels illustrate the development of Greene's attitudes and sympathies. The aim is to show how enjoyable and rewarding his work can be for 'agnostics' as well as for those who share Greene's allegiances. Special attention is paid to the flair for comedy which contributes even to the darkest stories, and to the craft of writing which has made Greene a best-seller as well as one of the most respected novelists of our time.
