From the Back Cover:

“Mr. Greene’s extraordinary power of plot-making, of suspense and of narration…moves continuously both in time and space and in emotion.” – The Times

"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

From the Inside Flap:

When Querry, world-famous architect, no longer enjoys life or takes pleasure in art, he sets off on a voyage to a leper colony in the Congo.
