With a new introduction by Monica Ali

The love affair between Maurice Bendix and Sarah, flourishing in the turbulent times of the London Blitz, ends when she suddenly and without explanation breaks it off. Two years later, after a chance meeting, Bendix hires a private detective to follow Sarah, and slowly his love for her turns into an obsession.
Graham Greene (1904–1991) worked as a journalist and critic, and was later employed by the foreign office. His many books include The Third Man, The Comedians and Travels with My Aunt. He is the subject of an acclaimed three-volume biography by Norman Sherry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heartbreaking I've lost the recollection of whether I read the book first or saw the film first. In either case, the story is compelling and both are worth your time. I thoroughly enjoy Greene as a writer.

Editorial Reviews

“One of the most true and moving novels of my time, in anybody’s language.”
—William Faulkner

"A superb storyteller with a gift for provoking controversy."
New York Times

“Greene had the sharpest eyes for trouble, the finest nose for human weaknesses, and was pitilessly honest in his observations . . . For experience of a whole century he was the man within.”
—Norman Sherry, Independent
