This third and final volume of Norman Sherry's biography takes Graham Greene from his amusingly frustrating journeying to China, to the very real peril of Cuba, the rigours of the Belgian Congo, through tumultuous Haiti, Nicaragua and Panama, his confrontation with the French mafia, and then into Spain, up to a quiet death at 86, in Switzerland.
Sherry illuminates Green's mind and methods, models and motivation, from hid heady success and surprising failure as a playwright; the wrenching loss of his beloved Catherine Walston and the deep but different love affairs that followed; to his final forays into the evil, fulminating trouble spots of the world which beckoned as sirens all his days.
