The Captain and the Enemy (Penguin Classics) by Graham Greene
The Captain and the Enemy (Penguin Classics)

DJD, December 27, 2013

This book turned me into a die-hard Graham Greene fan. The subtleties, the insights, the characters of his books! No simple black/white or good/bad dichotomies for him! Every character is believable and real; every one has flaws and virtues. (In this novel, though, they verge on surrealism.)
I’ve read this novel several times, but am still working on the question: What is that mysterious insight that seems to be lurking just beneath the surface?
