From the Inside Flap:

The Living Room; The Potting Shed; The Complaisant Lover; Carving a Statue; The Return of A.J. Raffles; The Great Jowett; Yes and No; For Whom the Bell Chimes.

In these eight plays Graham Greene demonstrates his skill as a dramatist. The Living Room portrays a love triangle, and Carving a Statue, his most innovative play, portrays an artist in pursuit of his masterpiece, a depiction of God the Father. The other plays are: The Return of AJ Raffles, a glorious Edwardian comedy; The Great Jowett, Greene's only radio play; The Potting Shed; The Complaisant Lover; Yes and No; and For Whom the Bell Chimes.
