"He felt the loyalty we feel to unhappiness-the sense that that is where we really belong." The very prolific British author split his books into "entertainments" (usually with an espionage theme) and his more serious books, but his best are both entertaining and thoughtful. Written in the late '40s, "The Heart of the Matter" is a perennial contender for his best book (vying with "The Power and the Glory") and like many of his more serious books is about a burnt-out man trying to hold onto his faith and humanity in an out of the way place, in this case a British outpost in Africa. I recommend drinking pink gins whilst reading this.
