9780099282594: Ways Of Escape (Vintage Classics)

With superb skill and feeling, Graham Greene retraces the experiences and encounters of his extraordinary life. His restlessness is legendary; as if seeking out danger, Greene travelled to Haiti during the nightmare rule of Papa Doc, Vietnam in the last days of the French, Kenya during the Mau Mau rebellion. With ironic delight he recalls his time in the British Secret Service in Africa, and his brief involvement in Hollywood. He writes, as only he can, about people and places, about faith, doubt, fear and, not least, the trials and craft of writing.

"Ways of Escape is as good as the best of its kind...marvellously rich" (William Trevor Guardian)

"Excellent reading...wonderfully good" (Sunday Telegraph)

"The writing is suffused with melancholy regret, not for what he writes, one feels, but for what he has left out" (Independent)

"Greene is unrivalled in his ability to evoke location and the human condition" (Carol Drinkwater Daily Express)

Book Description:
