Review:

"A master of storytelling" ( The Times)

"One of the finest writers of any language" ( Washington Post)

"A superb storyteller - he had a talent for depicting local colour, a keen sense of the dramatic, an eye for dialogue, and skill in pacing his prose" ( New York Times)

"There has been no novel of any political scope about Vietnam since Graham Greene wrote The Quiet American" ( Harper's)

"It might be nearly 60 years since The Quiet American was first published, but it still evokes the exotic promise of the Orient, and the troubled relationship Vietnam has with the West" ( Wanderlust)

Book Description Vintage. 1 Paperback(s), 2004. soft. Book Condition: New. Into the intrigue and violence of Indo-China comes Pyle, a young idealistic American sent to promote democracy through a mysterious "Third Force" that is neither colonialism nor communism. As his naïve optimism leads to bloodshed, his British friend Fowler, a cynical foreign correspondent, finds it hard to stand aside and watch. The relentless struggle of the Vietminh guerrillas for independence and the futility of the French gestures of resistance become inseparably meshed with the personal and moral dilemmas of these two men and the Vietnamese woman they both love. Graham Greene's remarkably prescient novel of American involvement in Vietnam explores, as Zadie Smith notes in her introduction, the author's idea that "Human nature is not black and white, but black and gray." Twice on the short list for consideration for the Nobel Prize in Literature—and ultimately earning such accolades for his career as the Shakespeare Prize, the Jerusalem Prize, and Britain's Order of Merit—Greene is one of the great writers of the 20th century. Often thought of as a Catholic novelist for such works as Brighton Rock, The Power and the Glory, The Heart of the Matter, and The End of the Affair, Greene also wrote thrillers like The Third Man and Our Man in Havana that explored international politics and espionage. 180.
