"The most ingenious, inventive and exciting of our novelists... A master of storytelling" (V. S. Pritchett The Times)
"I read Brighton Rock when I was about thirteen. One of the first lessons I took from it was that a serious novel could be an exciting novel - that the novel of adventure could also be the novel of ideas" (Ian McEwan)
"Graham Greene had wit and grace and character and story and a transcendent universal compassion that places him for all time in the ranks of world literature" (John le Carre)
"A superb storyteller with a gift for provoking controversy" ( New York Times)
" A superb storyteller with a gift for provoking controversy." -- "New York Times" " Greene had the sharpest eyes for trouble, the finest nose for human weaknesses, and was pitilessly honest in his observations . . .
