9780140028225: In Search of a Character: Two African Journals

Africa will always be the Africa of the Victorian atlas, the blank unexplored continent in the shape of the human heart. - Graham Greene
"In Search of A Character" is a vivid portrait of Greene's Africa and provides a wonderful glimpse of the novelist responding to the raw material of his art. Two African notebooks record his travels in 1959, and his stay at the Yonda leper colony in the jungle which inspired the story for "A Burnt-Out Case." Convoy to West Africa describes his voyage in a cargo boat during WW2, from Liverpool to Freetown, Sierra Leone, the setting for "The Heart of the Matter."
