Synopsis:

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY J.M. COETZEE

A gang war is raging through the dark underworld of Brighton. Seventeen-year-old Pinkie, malign and ruthless, has killed a man. Believing he can escape retribution, he is unprepared for the courageous, life-embracing Ida Arnold. Greene's gripping thriller, exposes a world of loneliness and fear, of life lived on the 'dangerous edge of things'.


Review:
"The most ingenious, inventive and exciting of our novelists... A master of storytelling" (V. S. Pritchett The Times)

"I read Brighton Rock when I was about thirteen. One of the first lessons I took from it was that a serious novel could be an exciting novel - that the novel of adventure could also be the novel of ideas" (Ian McEwan)

"Graham Greene had wit and grace and character and story and a transcendent universal compassion that places him for all time in the ranks of world literature" (John le Carre)

"A superb storyteller with a gift for provoking controversy" ( New York Times)

Review

Review:
Gripping, terrifying, an unputdownable read - Greene's iconic tale of the razor-wielding Pinkie.

Book Description: Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Deluxe ed. 211 x 140 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Hale knew, before he had been in Brighton three hours, that they meant to murder him. Graham Greene s chilling expose of violence and gang warfare in the pre-war underworld is a classic of its kind. Pinkie, a teenage gangster on the rise, is devoid of compassion or human feeling, despising weakness of both the spirit and the flesh. Responsible for the razor slashes that killed mob boss Kite and also for the death of Hale, a reporter who threatened the livelihood of the mob, Pinkie is the embodiment of calculated evil. As a Catholic, however, Pinkie is convinced that his retribution does not lie in human hands. He is therefore not prepared for Ida Arnold, Hale s avenging angel. Ida, whose allegiance is with life, the here and now, has her own ideas about the circumstances surrounding Hale s death. For the sheer joy of it, she takes up the challenge of bringing the infernal Pinkie to an earthly kind of justice. This Penguin Classics Deluxe edition features an introduction by J. M. Coetzee.
