9780099599975: Our Man in Havana: An Introduction by Christopher Hitchens (Vintage Summer)

"As comical, satirical, atmospherical an"entertainment" as he has given us." --Daily Telegraph. "No serious writer of this century has more thoroughly invaded and shaped the public imagination than did Graham Greene." --Time. "He had a sharp nose for trouble and injustice. In Our Man In Havana -- a witty send-up of an agent's life -- it was Cuba before Castro." --Financial Times
     Wormold, a vacuum cleaner salesman, was short of money. His daughter had reached an expensive age -- so he accepted Hawthorne's offer of $300-plus a month and became Agent 59200/5, M. I.6's man in Havana. To keep the job, Wormold pretends to recruit sub-agents and sends fake stories. Then the stories start coming disturbingly true.

Product Description:

'He carried with him the breath of beaches and the leathery smell of a good club'. This title comes with an introduction by Christopher Hitchens. Wormold is a vacuum cleaner salesman in a city of power cuts. His adolescent daughter spends his money with a skill that amazes him, so when a mysterious Englishman offers him an extra income he's tempted. In return all he has to do is carry out a little espionage and file a few reports. But when his fake reports start coming true things suddenly get more complicated and Havana becomes a threatening place.
