9780099286240: The Lawless Roads (Vintage Classics)

In 1938 Graham Greene was commissioned to visit Mexico to discover the state of the country and its people in the aftermath of the brutal anti-clerical purges of President Calles. His journey took him through the tropical states of Chiapas and Tabasco, where all the churches had been destroyed or closed and the priests driven out or shot. The experiences were the inspiration for his acclaimed novel, The Power and the Glory.

Review:

"Greene's originality lay in his gifts as a traveller. He had the foreign ear and eye for the strangeness of ordinary life and its ordinary crises"-- The Guardian

"Infuses the geography of distant places with an intense understanding of individual human destiny at play under startling and oppressive social conditions"-- Newsday

" The Lawless Roads, a masterpiece, embraces the spiritual and political conflict of the twentieth century, the cruelty of social engineers, the corruption of politicians and the wan humanity of martyrs made heroic by grace"-- The Independent

"Greene's work is a crucial link between the two most dynamic cultures of the present day, the Hispanic and the Anglo-American"-- The Observer

Book Description:

An account of Greene's travels in 1930s Mexico after the anti-clerical purges which inspired The Power and the Glory.
