Graham Greene Summary

Graham Greene: A Literary Life by Neil Sinyard

A new title in Palgrave Macmillan's Literary Lives series, this is a biographical narrative of Graham Greene's literary career. Among other things, it explores his motives for writing; the literary and cinematic influences that shaped his work; his writing routine and the importance of his childhood experience. Greene was elusive and enigmatic, and this book teases out the fiction from his autobiographies, the autobiography from his fictions, sharing Paul Theroux's view that you may not know Greene from his face or speech 'but from his writing, you know everything.'

'...fresh and useful...this book will provide many readers with a new way of getting to know Greene' - Martin Corner, Kingston University, Newsletter of the Graham Greene Birthplace Trust
