Graham Greene : A Literary Life
By Neil Sinyard
‘Life would be impossible for me if I knew that I would never write another book’ (Graham Greene).
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.’
