9780140185515: England Made Me

From master storyteller Graham Greene comes the tale of Anthony Farrant, who has boasted, lied and cheated his way through jobs all over the world. Then his adoring twin sister, Kate, gets him taken on as the bodyguard of Krogh, her lover and boss, a megalomaniac Swedish financier. All goes well until Krogh gives orders that offend Anthony's innate decency. Outraged and blind to risk, he leaks information to Minty, a shabby journalist and fellow victim of life, a decision that will lead to disastrous consequences.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

From the Inside Flap:

Anthony Farrant has always found his way, lying to get jobs and borrowing money to get by when he leaves them in a hurry. His twin sister Kate persuades him to move and sets him up with a job as a bodyguard to Krogh, her lover and boss, an all-powerful Swedish financier. But Farrant does have a sense of decency. When Krogh gives orders that offend him, he leaks information to Minty, a down-trodden journalist, with drastic results.

From the Back Cover:

“Greene arouses responses of curiosity and attention comparable to those set up by Malraux, Faulkner and Hemingway.” – New Statesman

“Greene can never be less than wonderfully readable.” – Daily Telegraph
