About this title

Synopsis:

A probing look at the life of this ultimately elusive writer explores Greene's true ambitions, unwitting involvement with tax fraud, mental breakdown, espionage ties to Kim Philby, and other enlightening information about this unusual literary figure.

Review:

The Quest for Graham Greene, an intentionally selective, intriguingly suggestive portrait, probes hitherto unexplored facets of the Anglo-Catholic novelist (1904-91). Among them are a nervous breakdown at age 16 that sent him to a London psychoanalyst who introduced him to spiritualism and the literary avant-garde; Greene's Byzantine ties to British intelligence, which continued long after his 1944 resignation from MI6; and his involvement in a tax-fraud scheme that led to exile from England in 1966. In approved postmodernist fashion, W. J. West uses the first person while recounting his diggings in various archives.
