Gripping, terrifying, an unputdownable read - Greene's iconic tale of the razor-wielding Pinkie.
Graham Greene was born in 1904. He worked as a journalist and critic, and in 1940 became literary editor of the Spectator. He was later employed by the Foreign Office. As well as his many novels, Graham Greene wrote several collections of short stories, four travel books, six plays, three books of autobiography, two of biography and four books for children. He also wrote hundreds of essays, and film and book reviews. Graham Greene was a member of the Order of Merit and a Companion of Honour. He died in April 1991.
To honor Greene's centennial, Penguin is reissuing these six titles in deluxe editions featuring new cover art, French flaps, and ragged paper at an affordable price. Very nice if you need some new copies. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
