The life of Graham Greene by Norman Sherry( Book )

165 editions published between 1904 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 3,378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Vol. 3) In time for the centenary of Greene's birth (Oct. 4, 2004) Sherry's magnificent, much anticipated final installment of his biographic trilogy was published. Once again, Sherry diligently tracks down the actual inspirations for fictional characters and situations (as well as possible work by Greene for the British secret service) and judiciously discusses Greene's idiosyncratic Catholicism. Sherry himself enters the story in 1974, eventually becoming Greene's sanctioned biographer, and he comments throughout about his experience finishing this monumental work, such as his arguments with competing biographer Michael Sheldon
