About the Author:

Graham Greene (1904-1991) was a prolific novelist, short story writer, travel writer and children's book writer. Many of his novels and short stories have been successfully adapted to the movie screen, including The Third Man (directed by Orson Welles), The End of The Affair, and The Quiet American

From School Library Journal:

YA-- This collection of 12 stories spans 66 years of creativity by this prolific writer who passed away in April, 1991. Its publication is not without a certain irony because unless unpublished works are yet to appear in print, it may indeed be Greene's "last word." It begins with a brief preface in which the author explains the reason for the inclusion of these particular stories. "A Branch of the Service" is published here for the first time. Several of the other selections appeared years ago in various literary magazines. All in some way bare the human soul. Characteristic themes of Greene's other works prevail--isolation, misunderstood love, spiritual hunger, and a certain painful ennui. There is one tongue-in-cheek piece titled "The Man Who Stole the Eiffel Tower." --Cynthia J. Rieben, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA
