The final volume of Sherry’s definitive authorised biography.

This third and final volume of Norman Sherry’s biography takes Graham Greene from the very real peril of Cuba to the rigours of the Belgian Congo, through tumultuous Haiti, Nicaragua and Panama, his confrontation with the French mafia, and then into Spain, up to a quiet death at 86, in Switzerland.

Sherry illuminates Greene’s mind and methods, models and motivation, from his heady success and surprising failure as a playwright; the wrenching loss of his beloved Catherine Walston and the deep but different love affairs that followed; to his final forays into the evil, fulminating trouble spots of the world which beckoned as sirens all his days.

The second of Norman Sherry's three-volume biography, encompassing the most creative period of Greene's life in terms of novels and films. It also saw the disintegration of his marriage, and his enrolment as a secret agent. In the 1950s Greene was increasingly drawn to the world's trouble spots.
