UPDATED AND EDITED WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY JUDITH ADAMSON

Whether reporting from the London cinema, Cotswolds villages, second-hand bookshops, war zones or political trouble spots, Graham Greene's novelistic gifts for detail, drama and compassionate curiosity provide unique and resonant insights into his life and times. To know war on any continent, read ‘A Memory of Indo-China’; to glimpse high political chicanery, read ‘The Great Spectacular’; to feel the flush and aftermath of revolutionary change, take up his pieces about Cuba. Reflections provides an extraordinary mirror on the twentienth century from one of its greatest observers.

Book Description Vintage. 1 Paperback(s), 2014. soft. Book Condition: New. Whether reporting from the London cinema, Cotswolds villages, secondhand bookshops, war zones, or political trouble spots, Graham Greene's novelistic gifts for detail, drama, and curiosity provide unique and resonant insights into his life and times. This particular collection of reportage, speeches, and memoirs—77 pieces, spanning 65 years—offers an extraordinary mirror on the 20th century from one of its greatest observers. To know war on any continent, read "A Memory of Indo-China"; to glimpse high political chicanery, read "The Great Spectacular"; to feel the flush and aftermath of revolutionary change, take up his pieces here about Cuba. 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 explored international politics and espionage in thrillers like The Third Man, Our Man in Havana, and The Quiet American, as well as essays and reportage from around the world. "An extraordinarily eclectic collection. [The author] reviews films, travels to trouble spots, bestrides the international political scene, welcomes Charlie Chaplin into exile from America, discusses communism, Catholicism and his literary idols. Vital, intelligent and a constant pleasure."—Observer (London) 421. Bookseller Inventory # 70848
