"A monumental biography...brilliant and admirable, capturing not only the pity and the despair, the anger and the nihilism of Greene's witness, but also the incorrigible sense of fun."
"Probably the best biography ever of a living author."
"An astonishingly thorough yet readable story, hard-nosed yet sympathetic, which portrays not only the writer himself but the times he lived through in Proustian detail."
"A great writer who spoke brilliantly to a whole generation."
This third and final volume of Norman Sherry's biography takes Graham Greene from the very real peril of Cuba to the rigours of the Belgian Congo, through tumultuous Haiti, Nicaragua and Panama, his confrontation with the French mafia, and then into Spain, up to a quiet death at 86, in Switzerland. Sherry illuminates Greene's mind and methods, models and motivation, from his heady success and surprising failure as a playwright; the wrenching loss of his beloved Catherine Walston and the deep but different love affairs that followed; to his final forays into the evil, fulminating trouble spots of the world which beckoned as sirens all his days.
