Graham Greene: Political Writer PALGRAVE MACMILLAN

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Graham Greene remarked that 'politics are in the air we breathe, like the presence or absence of a God' (The Other Man). This study is the first to provide a detailed consideration of the impact of his political thought and involvements on his writings both fictional and factual. It also offers the first detailed consideration of Greene's involvements in espionage and British intelligence from the 1920s until the late-1980s. It incorporates material not only from his major fictions but also from his prolific journalism, letters to the press, private correspondence, diaries and working manuscripts and typescripts, as well as consideration of the diverse political involvements and writings of his extended family network. It shows how the full range of Greene's writings was inspired and underpinned by his fascination with the essential human duality of political action and religious belief, coupled with an insistent need as a writer to keep the political personal.

Disobedient Servant Thistle Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Guy Colchester is an obedient servant in a very British civil service. His world is turned upside down when he is asked to undertake secret work involving weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East. The difficulty is knowing who in this upside down secret world he is really working for, what the weapons are and which part of the Middle East is in question. The Disobedient Servant is a political thriller in the tradition of Graham Greene, with a touch of Eric Ambler. Set in the dying days of the Cold War, it tells the story of a cog that gradually works loose in the whirring machinery of government, with destabilising effects for all concerned. 'Like Graham Greene and Eric Ambler, British former civil servant and speech-writer Ackland understands that contemporary espionage involves more bureaucrats than spies. In this intelligently constructed debut thriller, the unlikely protagonist is one Guy Colchester, a lowly official in the Ministry of Exports, a Walter Mitty without the daydreams.' Publishers Weekly 'Beguiling first fiction - part thriller and part rite of passage... Ackland, a former civil servant, effectively mines his own past to give this tale a nice gloss of authenticity. A literate romp through the bureaucracy with plenty of danger and riveting excitement.' Kirkus Reviews

For the Sake of Argument ATLANTIC BOOKS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The global turmoil of the late 1980s and early 1990s severely tested every analyst and commentator. Few wrote with such insight as Christopher Hitchens about the large events - or with such discernment and wit about the small tell-tale signs of a disordered culture. First published in 1993, the writings in For the Sake of Argument range from the political squalor of Washington to the twilight of Stalinizm in Prague, from the Jewish quarter of Damascus in the aftermath of the Gulf War to the embattled barrios of Central America. Hitchens provides re-assessments of Graham Greene, P. G. Woodhouse and C. L. R. James, and his rogues' gallery gives us portraits of Henry Kissinger, Mother Theresa and P. J. O'Rouke. The addition of pieces on political assassination in America, as well as a devastating indictment of the evisceration of politics by pollsters and spin doctors, and an entertaining celebration of booze and fags, complete this outstanding collection from a writer of unequalled talent.
