About the Author
Born in 1904, Graham Greene was the son of a headmaster and the fourth of six children. Preferring to stay home and read rather than endure the teasing at school that was a by-product of his father's occupation, Greene attempted suicide several times and eventually dropped out of school at the age of 15. His parents sent him to an analyst in London who recommended he try writing as therapy. He completed his first novel by the time he graduated from college in 1925. Greene wrote both entertainments and serious novels. Catholicism was a recurring theme in his work, notable examples being The Power and the Glory (1940) and The End of the Affair (1951). Popular suspense novels include: The Heart of the Matter, Our Man in Havana and The Quiet American. Greene was also a world traveler and he used his experiences as the basis for many books. One popular example, Journey Without Maps (1936), was based on a trip through the jungles of Liberia. Greene also wrote and adapted screenplays, including that of the 1949 film, The Third Man, which starred Orson Welles. He died in Vevey, Switzerland in 1991.
From Our Editors
Master of deception and a scam artist extraordinaire, Anthony Farrant does anything to get a great job that will take him where he wants to go. All was going well until his twin sister sets him as the bodyguard for her lover, Krogh. Actually, working for the megalomaniacal Swedish financier isn't all that bad and Anthony's quite enjoying himself. But Graham Greene is determined to throw a wrench into the whole plan and puts this character up to a challenge. England Made Me explores the moral twists that we all face everyday but few are forced to defend for their lives.
