The Life of Graham Greene
|Series:||Volume 1. 1904-1939|
This work presents a narrative of Graham Greene’s early life—including a breakdown in his early teens, his years at Oxford, and his courtship of his future wife—uncovering the origins of his literary preoccupations and his reasons for conversion to Roman Catholicism. Greene’s development as a novelist, from the early success of “The Man Within” to “The Power and the Glory”, is also explored in full. Winner of the 1990 Edgar Allen Poe Award for best critical/biographical study.
