    1. I knew Greene was a bit of a kook going into this book but manI think maybe I shouldn t have read this book The author tries to make suppositions about what he was actually thinking and what his motivations were while he was involved in subversive work for everyone from Noriega to Pol Pot to Papa Doc Duvalier Greene s loyalty shifting like blowing sand assuming he had any loyalties besides his dick and his money My summation of the guy is he s just a right pervert rat bastard and someone should [...]

    2. quite, quite good so good, in fact, I had to order an inexpensive used copy to have on hand Not only a good biography but also a review of all his books, putting them into the context of his life Greene was quite a prolific writer and often used his books as codes to divulge parts of his private life as I read of Greene, it will be nice to be able to refer back to this biography to better understand the hidden meanings and the context in which it was written.

    5. Graham Greene a spy Read the book I plan to This same author did a new bio on Twain ,which I am reading right now It s been excellent Very engaging,and of course it the big anniversary of Twain s this year So, great book to be reading right now due to the anniversaries twain2010 indexml I sooo look forward to this one about Greene This is for all you big Greene fans out there

    6. Interesting bio of Greene I am definitely going to read Brighton Rock Sheldon describes him as passionately disloyal.

    7. Something of a character assassination with little documented evidence to back up some of the extreme postulations.
