Review:

"Greene's originality lay in his gifts as a traveller. He had the foreign ear and eye for the strangeness of ordinary life and its ordinary crises"-- The Guardian

"Infuses the geography of distant places with an intense understanding of individual human destiny at play under startling and oppressive social conditions"-- Newsday

" The Lawless Roads, a masterpiece, embraces the spiritual and political conflict of the twentieth century, the cruelty of social engineers, the corruption of politicians and the wan humanity of martyrs made heroic by grace"-- The Independent

"Greene's work is a crucial link between the two most dynamic cultures of the present day, the Hispanic and the Anglo-American"-- The Observer

Book Description:

An account of Greene's travels in 1930s Mexico after the anti-clerical purges which inspired The Power and the Glory.
