Review quote

"A deliciously funny novel and affectionate offering to all that is noblest and least-changing in the people and life of Spain" * The Times * "A powerful late work...a mixture of entertainment and deep human awareness" -- Malcolm Bradbury "Monsignor Quixote is important in showing what may be the last stage of the novelist's long argument with himself about the needs, nature and effect of faith" * Times Literary Supplement * "Graham Greene's best, most absorbing, adept and effortless novel" * Spectator * "One of the finest writers of any language... Monsignor Quixote is a tour de force and a revealing document of Greene's theological and political intelligence" * Washington Post *
