Graham Greene’s final story collection speaks to timeless themes – religious faith, confused loyalties, the human bonds that bring light into our most sorrowful moments.

The title story describes a meeting between the last Pope and the General who deposed him. "The News in English is a heartbreaking tale of a man and wife separated by war. And an ageing waiter dreams of imparting the secret of his death to a kind stranger in "The Moment of Truth."

Taken from different points in his career, many of the stories in The Last Word have never before appeared in book form. Now, brought together in one exceptional volume, they have the power to move – and to entertain.
