About Graham Greene

Graham Greene (1904-1991), whose long life nearly spanned the length of the twentieth century, was one of its greatest novelists. Educated at Berkhamsted School and Balliol College, Oxford, he started his career as a sub-editor of "The Times of London. "He began to attract notice as a novelist with his fourth book, "Orient Express, "in 1932. In 1935, he trekked across northern Liberia, his first experience in Africa, recounted in "A Journey Without Maps "(1936). He converted to Catholicism in 1926, an edifying decision, and reported on religious persecution in Mexico in 1938 in "The Lawless Roads, "which served as a background for his famous "The Power and the Glory," one of several Catholic novels ("Brighton Rock, The Heart of the Matter, The End of the Affair). "During the war he worked for the British secret service in Sierra Leone- afterward, he began wide-ranging travels as a journalist, which were reflected in novels such as "The Quiet American, Our Man in Havana, The Comedians, Travels with My Aunt, The Honorary Consul, The Human Factor, Monsignor Quixote, "and "The Captain and the Enemy. "In addition to his many novels, Graham Greene wrote several collections of short stories, four travel books, six plays, two books of autobiography "A Sort of Life "and "Ways of Escape" two biographies, and four books for children. He also contributed hundreds of essays and film and book reviews to "The Spectator "and other journals, many of which appear in the late collection "Reflections. "Most of his novels have been filmed, including "The Third Man," which the author first wrote as a film treatment. Graham Greene was named Companion of Honour and received the Order of Merit among numerous other awards. Mark Bosco is associate professor of English and Theology at Loyola University Chicago.He has written on Graham Greene and Flannery O'Connor, as well as on the aesthetics of Hans Urs von Balthasar."
