Graham Greene

Henry Graham Greene, OM, CH was an English novelist, short story writer, playwright, screenplay writer, travel writer and critic whose works explore the ambivalent moral and political issues of the modern world. Greene combined serious literary acclaim with wide popularity.Although Greene objected strongly to being described as a “Catholic novelist” rather than as a “novelist who happened to be Catholic,” Catholic religious themes are at the root of much of his writing, especially the four major Catholic novels: Brighton Rock, The Heart of the Matter, The End of the Affair, and The Power and the Glory. Works such as The Quiet American, Our Man in Havana and The Human Factor also show an avid interest in the workings of international politics and espionage.(Excerpted from Wikipedia)
levensjaren: 2 oktober 1904 3 april 1991

Citaten

Roberto Garzaciteerde uit3 maanden geleden
I wondered what depth of homesickness lay behind his odd choice of what to observe in a scene so unfamiliar.

Strangers found them picturesque, but there is nothing picturesque in treachery and distrust
Roberto Garzaciteerde uit3 maanden geleden
I found his light reading on another shelf: a portable Thomas Wolfe and a mysterious anthology called The Triumph of Life and a selection of American poetry.
