Pinkie, the teenage gangster, is devoid of compassion or human feeling, despising weakness of the spirit or of the flesh. Responsible for the razor slashes that killed Kite and also for the death of Hale, he is the embodiment of calculated evil. As a Catholic, however, he is convinced that his retribution does not lie in human hands. He is therefore not prepared for Ida Arnold, Hale's avenging angel. Ida, whose allegiance is with life, the here and now, has her own ideas about the circumstances surrounding Hale's death.

The "Captain" changes the boy's name to Jim and brings him to London to serve as a surrogate son to a mysterious woman named Liza. Raised in odd, touching circumstances, Jim never comprehends the enduring relationship between the Captain and Liza, and he struggles to understand what love itself is. Although the novel then takes the Captain and Jim into seedy political intrigue in Panama and Nicaragua, it finally returns to the question of what the proofs of human love are.

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.

I made a long journey through time, and I was one of my characters." Known for his espionage thrillers set in exotic locales, Graham Greene is the writer who launched a thousand travel journalists. But although Greene produced some unabashedly commercial works -- he called them "entertainments," to distinguish them from his novels -- even his escapist fiction is rooted in the gritty realities he encountered around the globe+-+6020365965324217923ocn006626216book19800.26Greene, GrahamWays of escapeBiographyThis work follows the fragment of autobiography published under the title "A Sort of Life."+-+8407374455183821ocn011030313book19840.24Greene, GrahamGetting to know the general : the story of an involvementBiographyProvides an account of a five-year author's personal involvement with Omar Torrijos, ruler of Panama from 1968-81 and Sergeant Chuchu, one of the few men in the National Guard whom the General trusted completely+-+711737445532418025ocn010825044book19840.39Kelly, Richard MichaelGraham GreeneCriticism, interpretation, etcRanking among the most widely read English writers of the twentieth century, Graham Greene achieved success with novels like Brighton Rock (1938) and The End of the Affair (1951). Less attention has been devoted to his short stories, however, despite his clear mastery of that art form. In them, Greene treats the same themes--evil, irony, and ambiguity, among others--but with a greater coherence and more striking purity. The extensive travel and other personal experiences that render his novels so captivating also reflect themselves in his short fiction. One of these experiences was his treatment at the hands of bullies while he attended the Berkhamsted School, an ordeal leading Richard Kelly to view the bulk of Greene's writings as an attempt to work out the trauma of this boyhood abuse. To support his position, Kelly goes back to the uncollected stories Greene wrote as a schoolboy and then as a student at Oxford. Kelly uses these tales as a stepping stone to a thorough examination of the later short fiction, from The Basement Room (1935) to The Last Word (1990). Those readers already familiar with Greene will find Kelly's insightful links between the stories and the novels very enlightening, and novices will be able to discuss and reread Greene's works with a much greater sense of command. This, the first book-length study of Graham Greene's short fiction, will prove indispensable to anyone interested in the writer+-+191979953532416802ocn000446058book19730.29Hynes, SamuelGraham Greene: a collection of critical essaysCriticism, interpretation, etc149814ocn000365667book19610.35Greene, GrahamIn search of a character : two African journalsDiaries"Not intended for publication, the journal of Graham Greene's trip to the Belgian Congo in 1959 was the raw material for the novel that became A Burnt-out Case.

Hitherto, most criticism of Greene's fiction has forced him into the constricting category of the "Catholic novelist," consequently flattening the peaks and valleys of his uncompromising vision of life. Graham Greene's Fictions is Cates Baldridge's response to this critical disservice - an exploration that ignores the conventional preconceptions about Greene's fiction and reveals him to be one of the leading British novelists of the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET+-+960767173512903ocn180704361file19960.53Diemert, BrianGraham Greene's thrillers and the 1930sHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc"In Graham Greene's Thrillers and the 1930s Brian Diemert examines the first and most prolific phase of Graham Greene's career, demonstrating the close relationship between Greene's fiction and the political, economic, social, and literary contexts of the period. Situating Greene alongside other young writers who responded to the worsening political climate of the 1930s by promoting social and political reform, Diemert argues that Greene believed literature could not be divorced from its social and political milieu and saw popular forms of writing as the best way to inform a wide audience." "Diemert traces Greene's adaptation of nineteenth-century romance thrillers and classical detective stories into modern political thrillers as a means of presenting serious concerns in an engaging fashion. He argues that Greene's popular thrillers were in part a reaction to the high modernism of writers such as James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, and Virginia Woolf, whose esoteric experiments with language were disengaged from immediate social concerns and inaccessible to a large segment of the reading public."--Jacket+-+888960822512907ocn000365658book19590.39Kunkel, Francis LThe labyrinthine ways of Graham GreeneCriticism, interpretation, etc12636ocn000365661book19630.47Evans, Robert OGraham Greene : some critical considerationsCriticism, interpretation, etc12171ocn002035192book19760.33Six contemporary British novelistsCriticism, interpretation, etc11965ocn031130956book19940.26Shelden, MichaelGraham Greene : the enemy withinBiography11787ocn646790708file20060.53Bergonzi, BernardA study in Greene Graham Greene and the art of the novelCriticism, interpretation, etc"In this critical study Bernard Bergonzi makes a close examination of the language and structure of Greene's novels, and traces the obsessive motifs that recur throughout his work. Most earlier criticism was written while Greene was still working, and was to some extent provisional, as the final shape of his oeuvre was not yet apparent. In this book Bergonzi is able to take a view of Greene's whole career and argues that the earlier work - combining melodrama, realism, and poetry - was Greene's best, with Brighton Rock, a moral fable that draws on crime fiction and Jacobean tragedy, as his masterpiece. The novels published after the 1950s were very professional examples of skilful story-telling but represented a decline from this high level of achievement+-+5756474465117517ocn002656054book19570.47Atkins, JohnGraham GreeneBiographyStudy of the man and his work113715ocn061363207file20040.53Bosco, MarkGraham Greene's Catholic imaginationHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etcGraham Greene's early books are described as 'Catholic Novels' with his later work falling into political and detective genres.

This book argues that Greene's writings have much to teach us about fighting evil here and now, and about endeavoring to live a worthy life. In novels that span half of the twentieth century, Greene related stories of evil persons who destroyed the freedom of others and of a few simple people who fought them. Through these stories he showed us three basic truths: first, evil exists; second, it is possible to fight it; and third, one may attain wisdom and sometimes a very limited glory by undertaking such a struggle. Gordon's study sets forth its own important lesson: thinking and assuming responsibility for the world, guided by the reading of great literature, are keystones of any worthy life.'+-+8920478685+-+6582897965+-+6582897965Thu Oct 16 15:53:40 EDT 2014batch233569
