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.

A darkly comic story about a vacuum cleaner salesman in 1950s Havanna who is approached to become a spy for MI6.Review:
"As comical, satirical, atmospherical an "entertainment" as he has given us" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Nobody should be anywhere near power who hasn't read (or seen the film of) Our Man in Havana, a powerful satire on the silly world of spying by a man who had experienced it" ( Mail on Sunday)
"Graham Greene was a profound and experimental stylist" ( Time Out)
"The human story is warm and the satire made me laugh out loud" (Simon Shepherd Daily Express)
