About this Item

A fascinating and unusual book. From the DJ: "Not intended for publication, the journal of Graham Greene's trip to the Belgian Congo in 1959 was the raw material for the novel that became 'A Burnt-Out Case.' A shorter journal, of a wartime convoy to West Africa in 1941, was a prelude to the writing of "The Heart of the Matter." Together they are a fascinating revelation of the fiction writer's craft." This copy is Fine/NF, with facsimile page from Greene's original journal reprinted on the endpapers. A tipped in limitations page preceding the title page states "This is one of 600 advance copies of IN SEARCH OF A CHARACTER specially designed for friends of the author and the publishers. Christmas 1961. (Viking Seal). Bookseller Inventory # 141104
