"One of the most important British writers of the twentieth century - he brought something undeniably new to fiction" * Daily Telegraph * "He taught us to look at each other with new eyes. I don't suppose his influence will ever disappear" -- Auberon Waugh * Independent * "No serious writer of this century had more thoroughly invaded and shaped the public imagination than did Graham Greene" * The Times * "A tour de force... The realist and the romantic struggle with each other in this book, making it a kind of mental battlefield, inducing a sense of breathlessness and urgency" * L. P. Hartley * "Graham Greene had wit and grace and character and story and a transcendent universal compassion that places him for all time in the ranks of world literature" -- John Le Carre
