In this exceptional and fascinating memoir, Graham Greene, who has been called the greatest English novelist of his time, retraces the experiences and encounters of a long and extraordinary life. In Ways of Escape, Greene takes each of his novels as a point of departure for bringing together his reflections on his life and writing over 50 years. With ironic delight he recalls his time in the British Secret Service in Africa, and his brief involvement in Hollywood. He writes, as only he can, about people and places, about faith, doubt, fear and, not least, the trials and crafts of writing.
Filled with wit, compassion and insight, Ways of Escape is also a unique contribution to the understanding of a great novelist, a man who throughout his life always chose to remain private, in the shadows.
Praise for Graham Greene:
?There is no better storyteller in English today.?-V.S. Pritchett
?As good as the best of its kind-marvelously rich.? ?William Trevor, The Guardian
