Review:

"A triumph of a collection - wise and stimulating" ( Guardian)

"He was, he is, the best of critics" (Dilys Powell Guardian)

"Opening a new book by Graham Greene is like settling into a gran turismo car. Nothing will go wrong" ( Sunday Times)

From the Publisher:

'A triumph of a collection' Guardian
'In childhood all books are books of divination...and like the fortune teller who sees a long journey in the cards or death by water they influence the future.'

So writes Graham Greene, describing his childhood love of reading and how it grew into a passion for writing. Collected Essays contains nearly eighty essays, reviews and occasional pieces composed between novels, plays and travel books over four prolific decades. From Henry James and Somerset Maugham to Ho Chi Minh and Kim Philby, the range of subjects is eclectic and stimulating, and the characters - writers, priests, explorers - are brought vivdly to life. 'A man should be judged by his enmities as well as by his friendships, ' Greene wrote. In that sense Collected Essays is as revealing as autobiography and as characteristically rich in humour, insight and doubt.

'He was, he is, the best of critics' Dilys Powell, Guardian

'Opening a new book by Graham Greene is like settling into a gran turismo car. Nothing will go wrong' Sunday Times
