  • "Greene's work attempts to link the serious moral imagination with the spirit of adventure and romance and to extend the remapping of imaginative geography first undertaken by Conrad"

    Times Higher Education Supplement
  • "A superb storyteller with a gift for provoking controversy"

    New York Times
  • "Greene had the sharpest eyes for trouble, the finest nose for human weaknesses, and was pitilessly honest in his observations... For experience of a whole century he was the man within"
