Richard Greene (English, 1984)
Graham Greene: A Life in Letters (Little, Brown) is ‘A triumph of judgement and judicious selection that offers a vivid new picture of Greene the man: his pleasures, foibles, and, above all, his generosity,’ says Ian Thomson in The Sunday Times. David Lodge has named it his book of the year in The Guardian. Graham Greene lived for eighty-six years and wrote many tens of thousands of letters. This selection sifts through the vast number that survive and presents the biography of a major British novelist in his own words and in his own voice. The volume has a detailed introduction and notes to guide the reader through the rough terrain of Graham Greene’s career – Mexico, Vietnam, Russia, Israel, Sierra Leone, Cuba, The Congo, Paraguay and Panama – and draws the reader into a life of writing, espionage, romance, and political involvement.
