Mr. Wormold, a vacuum cleaner salesman , was short of money. His daughter had reached an expensive age - so he accepted Hawthorne's offer of $300-plus a month and became Agent 59200/5, M.I.6's man in Havana. To keep the job, Wormold pretends to recruit sub-agents and sends fake stories. Then the stories start becoming disturbingly true.

From the Jacket

"Comical, satirical, atmospherical." - Daily Telegraph

"Graham Greene had wit and grace and character and story and a transcendent universal compassion that places him for all time in the ranks of world literature." - John Le Carré

"He had a sharp nose for trouble and injustice. In Our Man in Havana - a witty send-up of an agent's life - it was Cuba before Castro." - Financial Times
