Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

MI6s man in Havana is Wormold, a former vacuum-cleaner salesman turned reluctant secret agent out of economic necessity. To keep his job, he files bogus reports based on Charles Lambs Tales from Shakespeare and dreams up military installations from vacuum-cleaner designs. Then his stories start coming disturbingly true…

 

First published in 1959 against the backdrop of the Cold War, Our Man in Havana remains one of Graham Greenes most widely read novels. It is an espionage thriller, a penetrating character study, and a political satire of government intelligence that still resonates today. This Penguin Classics edition features an introduction by Christopher Hitchens.

Lucy Little, April 4, 2008 (view all comments by Lucy Little)
A classic by Graham Greene. This stories tells the story of a vacuum-cleaner saleman who gets caught up in a web of false government reports and lies to make a little extra money. Unfortunately, his falsehoods lead to actual truths.
