"In Search of A Character" is a vivid portrait of Greene's Africa and provides a wonderful glimpse of the novelist responding to the raw material of his art. Two African notebooks record his travels in 1959, and his stay at the Yonda leper colony in the jungle which inspired the story for "A Burnt-Out Case." Convoy to West Africa describes his voyage in a cargo boat during WW2, from Liverpool to Freetown, Sierra Leone, the setting for "The Heart of the Matter."

Greene set two of his novels in Africa, A Burnt-Out Case (Yonda leper colony) and The Heart of the Matter (the Congo). They arose from separate visits during which he kept journals. The journals are printed here and provide a glimpse of the novelist responding to the raw material of his art.Review:
"Africa will always be the Africa of the Victorian atlas, the blank unexplored continent in the shape of the human heart." - Graham Greene
