MEDIA REVIEWS

The most ingenious, inventive and exciting of our novelists... A master of storytelling - The Times

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

A superb storyteller with a gift for provoking controversy - New York Times

I read Brighton Rock when I was about thirteen. One of the first lessons I took from it was that a serious novel could be an exciting novel - that the novel of adventure could also be the novel of ideas - Ian McEwan

“I think I'll have more of where this came from...”

A chilling tale told in the most exquisite of styles. Greene delivers a frightfully gripping thriller which sucked me in from the first page and never let me go. Marvelous storytelling.
