Graham Greene: the Dangerous Edge PALGRAVE MACMILLAN

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Since the war Graham Greene has travelled habitually to the world's trouble-spots and has provided leading newspapers and journals with articles about what he saw. While contending that a writer must be free of political affiliations he has committed himself to many countries and causes, and while insisting that literature must never be used for political ends he has written novels informed by a political urgency. This book is about his political reportage and how the observations that formed it were transformed into literature. It is about how a novelist who struggled to record public issues dispassionately became in the process an important political conscience.

In South London terrorists plot...Hood, a renegade American diplomat, envisions a new urban order in the opium for of his room. He flirts with terrorists, hoping to win their trust and respect. Mayo, his sometime bedmate, has just made a political statement - stealing a "Flemish" painting and negotiating publicity over this act with "The Times". Murf the bomb-maker leaves his mark in red, scrawling 'Arsenal Rule' across half the city's walls, whilst his sixteen-year-old girlfriend, Brodie, bombs Euston and afterwards worries about her complexion. A novel of London lowlife and the dispossessed, and a powerful and violent thriller of disenchanted people. "A pleasure ...with Theroux the thrills are never cheap and obvious". ("Guardian"). "One of the most evocative, intelligently crafted suspense novels in years - like the early fiction of Graham Greene...London has rarely looked dingier or more sinister assured success". ("The New York Times"). "Brilliant and haunting ...the ingenious of the plot, the London setting ...the trapped and interwoven people, and the balefully witty observation, have an undistracted force". ("Observer").
