9780099288527: The Human Factor (Vintage Classics)

With a new introduction by Colm Toibin

A leak is traced to a small sub-section of SIS, sparking off the inevitable security checks, tensions and suspicions. The sort of atmosphere, perhaps, where mistakes could be made? For Maurice Castle, it is the end of the line anyway, and time for him to retire to live peacefully with his African wife, Sarah.

To the lonely, isolated, neurotic world of the Secret Service, Graham Greene brings his brilliance and perception, laying bare a machine that sometimes overlooks the subtle and secret motivations that impel us.

Product Description:

Human Factor

Review:

"Graham Greene's beautiful and disturbing novel is filled with tenderness, humour, excitement and doubt" ( The Times)

"As fine a novel as he has ever written - concise, ironic, acutely observant of contemporary life, funny, shocking, above all compassionate" (Anthony Burgess)

"It is beautifully done, a pleasure to read, a succession of deft, unobtrusive, yet masterly touches" ( Guardian)

"About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
