Comedians by Graham Greene

Book Description

Three men meet on a ship bound for Haiti, a world in the grip of the corrupt Papa Doc and the Tontons Macoute, his sinister secret police. Brown the hotelier, Smith the innocent American, and Jones the confidence man these are the comedians of Greene s title. Hiding behind their actors masks, they hesitate on the edge of life.

Author Biography - 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. Paul Theroux, an internationally acclaimed travel writer, is also the author of over two dozen novels and works of non-fiction. He divides his time between Cape Cod and the Hawaiian Islands."
