9780006276609: Graham Greene: Friend and Brother

For 27 years Fr Leopoldo Duran was probably the closest friend of the novelist Graham Greene. Greene and Duran holidayed together in Spain and Portugal every year, and visited each other's homes regularly Duran administered the Sacrament of Extreme Unction for the first time at the time of Greene's death, when he was the only person present. Greene's last novel, "Monsignor Quixote", is built around the pair's adventures, and dedicated to Duran. Duran describes Quixote as a mixture of his own priestliness and Greene's quixotic side, with the Mayor embodying Greene's intellectual leanings towards communism and atheism. Fr Duran documented his relationship with Greene exhaustively, and has a huge archive of photographs.
