Description

When Graham Greene died in 1991, at the age of 86, his reputation as a "Catholic" writer was assured. His books reflected an awareness of sin and confronted political and religious themes with a somber eye. From 1936 to 1987, the British Catholic journal The Tablet provided Greene with a forum for his works-in-progress and sometimes unorthodox religious views. For the first time his Tablet contributions are collected in one volume; much of the material has remained forgotten for half a century.For the first time, too, Greene's many book reviews for The Tablet are brought together. His column for the newspaper's "Fiction Chronicle" praised the anti-Fascist Italian novelist Ignazio Silone and even a science fiction by the Czech author Karel Capek.show more

Review quote

"This book is a delight."--Choice"Greene was in the habit of dropping the Tablet a line on anything from Nicaragua to the sex of God. These pieces have been retrieved and placed between hard covers here for the first time. Students of the author's paradoxical religious inclinations - he was an agnostic who went to Mass - will find much to ponder here, while Greene completists won't want to be without this fine nosegay of hard-to-find occasional journalism." --The Observer "This book is a delight."--Choice"Greene was in the habit of dropping the Tablet a line on anything from Nicaragua to the sex of God.
