9780099478379: The Comedians

The centenary edition with a new introduction by Paul Theroux: three men meet on a ship bound for Haiti. Hiding behind their actors’ masks, they hesitate on the edge of life — afraid of love, afraid of pain, afraid of fear itself.

Review:

One of Graham Greene's most chilling and prophetic novels, The Comedians is set in a Haiti ruled by Papa Doc and the Tontons Macoute, his sinister secret police. Just as The Quiet American offered a preview of the coming horrors of American involvement in Vietnam, this novel presages the chaos in Haiti. Classic Graham Greene.

From the Back Cover:

"Graham Greene arouses responses of curiosity and attention comparable to those set up by Malraux... Faulkner and Hemingway." - New Statesman
