WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS

'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 Carré

Wormold is a vacuum cleaner salesman in a city of power cuts. His adolescent daughter spends his money with a skill that amazes him, so when a mysterious Englishman offers him an extra income he's tempted. In return all he has to do is carry out a little espionage and file a few reports. But when his fake reports start coming true, things suddenly get more complicated and Havana becomes a threatening place.

Review:

"As comical, satirical, atmospherical an "entertainment" as he has given us" (Daily Telegraph)

"He had a sharp nose for trouble and injustice. In Our Man In Havana - a witty send-up of an agent's life - it was Cuba before Castro" (Financial Times)

"Nobody should be anywhere near power who hasn't read (or seen the film of) Our Man in Havana, a powerful satire on the silly world of spying by a man who had experienced it" (Mail on Sunday)

"Graham Greene captured a pre-Castro Cuba of daiquiris and decadence... hilarious" (Independent)

"British Intelligence being sent up something rotten" (Daily Telegraph, 20 Best Spy Novels of All Time)

Book Description:

'No serious writer of this century has more thoroughly invaded and shaped the public imagination than did Graham Greene' Time
