Synopses & Reviews

Written with Graham Greene's complete consent, this extraordinary biography introduces a romantic and impassioned Greene. Delving into this early life, Sherry uncovers the origins of Greene's literary preoccupations and his development as a novelist, penetrating the strange emotional territory that Greene made his own. 32 pages of photographs.

Review:

"A cool assessment — as close as we will ever get to the man." J. G. Ballard, The Times (London)
