The End of the Affair / Graham Greene

Graham Greene was born in 1904 and educated at Berkham-sted School, where his father was headmaster. On coming down from Baliiol College, Oxford, where he published a book of verse, he worked for four years as sub-editor on The Times. He established his reputation with his fourth novel, Stamboul Train, which he classed as an ‘entertainment' in order to distinguish it from more serious work. In 1935 he made a journey across Liberia, described in Journey Without Maps, and on his return was appointed film critic of the Spectator. In 1926 he had been received into the Roman Catholic Church and visited Mexico in 1938 to report on the religious persecution there. As a result he wrote The Lawless Roads and, later, his famous novel The Power and the Glory.

Brighton Rock was published in 1938 and in 1940 he became literary editor of the Spectator. The next year he undertook work for the Foreign Office and was stationed in Sierra Leone from 1941 to 1943. This later produced his novel, The Heart of the Matter, set in West Africa. Other novels include The End of the Affair (1951), The Quiet American (1955), Travels With My Aunt (1969), The Honorary Consul (1973), Dr Fischer of Geneva or The Bomb Party (1980), Monsignor Quixote (1982), The Tenth Man (1985) and The Captain and the Enemy (1988).

As well as his many novels, Graham Greene has written several collections of short stories, four travel books, six plays, two books of autobiography, A SortofLife{ 1971),and Waysof Escape ( 1980), and two of biography, Lord Rochester's Monkey ( 1974) and An Impossible Woman: The Memories of Dottoressa Moor of Capri ( 1975). He has also written four books for children, and has contributed hundreds of essays, and film and book reviews. Many of his novels and short stories have been filmed and The Third Man was written as a film treatment. Graham Greene is a member of the Order of Merit and a Companion of Honour.
