Biographie de l'auteur :

Graham Greene (1904-1991), whose long life nearly spanned the length of the twentieth century, was one of its greatest novelists. Educated at Berkhamsted School and Balliol College, Oxford, he started his career as a sub-editor of the  London  Times He began to attract notice as a novelist with his fourth book,  Orient Express in 1932. In 1935, he trekked across northern Liberia, his first experience in Africa, told in  A Journey Without Maps (1936). He converted to Catholicism in 1926, an edifying decision, and reported on religious persecution in Mexico in 1938 in  The Lawless Roads which served as a background for his famous  The Power and the Glory, one of several “Catholic” novels ( Brighton  Rock The Heart of the Matter The End of the Affair ). During the war he worked for the British secret service in Sierra Leone; afterward, he began wide-ranging travels as a journalist, which were reflected in novels such as  The Quiet American Our Man in Havana The Comedians Travels with My Aunt The Honorary Consul The Human Factor Monsignor Quixote and  The Captain and the Enemy As well as his many novels, Graham Greene wrote several collections of short stories, four travel books, six plays, two books of autobiography,  A Sort of Life and  Ways of Escape, two biographies, and four books for children. He also contributed hundreds of essays and film and book reviews to  The Spectator and other journals, many of which appear in the late collection  Reflections Most of his novels have been filmed, including  The Third Man, which the author first wrote as a film treatment. Graham Greene was named Companion of Honour and received the Order of Merit among numerous other awards.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.
