The honorary consul

The honorary consul Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The gripping tragicomedy of a bungled kidnapping in a provincial Argentinian town is considered one of Greenes finest. It tells of Charley Fortnum, the “Honorary Consul,” a whisky-sodden figure of dubious authority taken by a group of revolutionaries. As Eduardo Plarr, a local doctor, negotiates with authorities and the revolutionaries for Fortnums release, the corruption of both becomes evident. This spare, tense novel explores the morality of a political system that turns priests into killers.
