Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Affairs, obsessions, ardours, fantasy, myth, legend and dream, fear, pity and violence — this magnificent collection of stories illuminates all corners of the human experience.

Previously published in three volumes — May We Borrow Your Husband?, A Sense of Reality, and Twenty-One Stories — these thirty-seven stories reveal Graham Greene in a range of constrasting moods, sometimes cynical and witty, sometimes searching and philosophical. Each one confirms V. S. Pritchett's statement that Greene is "a master of storytelling."

Review:

"A superb storyteller...he had a talent for depicting local colour, which he gathered at first hand; a keen sense of the dramatic; an eye for dialogue, and skill in pacing his prose." The New York Times

Review:

"One of the most important British writers of the twentieth century...he brought something undeniably new to fiction." Daily Telegraph

About the Author

Graham Greene (1904 &1991) began to attract notice as a novelist in 1932 with his fourth book, Orient Express. He converted to Catholicism in 1926, a transformation that influenced several "Catholic" novels, including Brighton Rock, The Heart of the Matter, and The End of the Affair. During World War II he worked for the British secret service in Sierra Leone; afterward he began wide-ranging travels as a journalist, reflected in such novels as The Quiet American and Travels with My Aunt. As well as his many novels, Greene wrote several collections of short stories, four travel books, six plays, two books of autobiography, two biographies, and four books for children.
