Critic Reviews

“"One of the most true and moving novels of my time, in anybody's language." -William Faulkner "A superb storyteller with a gift for provoking controversy." -New York Times "Greene had the sharpest eyes for trouble, the finest nose for human weaknesses, and was pitilessly honest in his observations . . . For experience of a whole century he was the man within." -Norman Sherry,Independent”

Greene's novel of illicit love captures perfectly the atmosphere of rainy wartime London - try to read this in one sitting if you can Express Devastating study of the collision of different kinds of faith, betrayal and commitment The Times In a class by himself...the ultimate chronicler of twentieth-century man's consciousness and anxiety -- William Golding One of the most true and moving novels of my time, in anybody's language William Faulkner Singularly beautiful and moving -- Evelyn Waugh
