Greene's fine sense of humor is displayed in this warm and far-reaching comic novel,Travels with My Aunt, a bestseller when it appeared originally. At his mother's funeral, Henry Pulling, a stuffy, retired bank manager with an interest in dahlias, meets his Aunt Augusta.

Henry describes his activities with shock and bewilderment, and, finally, with the tenderness of a fellow traveler going their way.
