About the Author

Graham Greene was born in 1904. He worked as a journalist and critic, and was later employed by the Foreign Office. He died in April 1991.

From Our Editors

The first of a series of three books of autobiography, A Sort of Life describes the life of prolific writer Graham Greene. Born in 1904, Greene began his career as a journalist before writing novels, several collections of short stories, travel books, six plays and other works, including a vast quantity of essays and reviews. Often focusing on the human situation buried in localized wars and other political strife, the author compassionately examines the place of humankind buried within 20th century armed angst. When he died in 1991, Greene left behind a vast repertoire of master works and, thankfully, the story of his brilliant life.

Editorial Reviews

"A great writer who spoke brilliantly to a whole generation."
-Alec Guinness

"The setting of his life is beautifully observed and conveyed. I have never admired his writing more -- the masterly skill and economy; the excitement he manages to pump, not just into the narrative, but into the very sentences, which throb and glow themselves."
- Observer

"This is the work of a remarkable man determined to show he is not particularly remarkable... his fame is secure."
- Daily Telegraph
