Product Description:

Brighton Rock

Review:

"The most ingenious, inventive and exciting of our novelists... A master of storytelling" (V. S. Pritchett The Times)

"I read Brighton Rock when I was about thirteen. One of the first lessons I took from it was that a serious novel could be an exciting novel - that the novel of adventure could also be the novel of ideas" (Ian McEwan)

"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 Carre)

"A superb storyteller with a gift for provoking controversy" ( New York Times)

Book Description Vintage. 1 Paperback(s), 2004. soft. Book Condition: New. In this classic psychological suspense novel, a follow-up to A Gun for Sale, Graham Greene lays bare the soul of a boy of 17 who stalks Brighton's tawdry boardwalk with apathy on his face and murder in his heart. Pinkie is not just bad, he worships in the temple of evil, just as his parents worshipped in the house of God. Crime, in his dark mind, is a release so deep and satisfying that he has no need for drink or women or the love of his fellows. He is an astounding character, sinister and fascinating—"a chilling specimen of the Adolf Hitler type," notes J.M. Coetzee, who provides the introduction to this 2004 edition for Greene's centenary. 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—Graham Greene is one of the great writers of the 20th century. Often thought of as a Catholic novelist for such works as this one and for The Power and the Glory, The Heart of the Matter, and The End of the Affair, Greene also wrote thrillers like The Third Man, Our Man in Havana, and The Quiet American that explored international politics and espionage. 269.
