Brighton rock - no matter where you bite it, what's in the centre remains there. This I presume is Greene's metaphor for our personalities that we are stuck with once we enter adulthood. Pinkie Brown ... Leer reseña completa

I read Brighton Rock because I loved The Quiet American so much - in fact, I may get a line from it tattooed on my body! That's a lot of love, y'all. Unfortunately, this book didn't quite capture me ... Leer reseña completa

Sobre el autor (1991)

Born in 1904, Graham Greene was the son of a headmaster and the fourth of six children. Preferring to stay home and read rather than endure the teasing at school that was a by-product of his father's occupation, Greene attempted suicide several times and eventually dropped out of school at the age of 15. His parents sent him to an analyst in London who recommended he try writing as therapy. He completed his first novel by the time he graduated from college in 1925. Greene wrote both entertainments and serious novels. Catholicism was a recurring theme in his work, notable examples being The Power and the Glory (1940) and The End of the Affair (1951). Popular suspense novels include: The Heart of the Matter, Our Man in Havana and The Quiet American. Greene was also a world traveler and he used his experiences as the basis for many books. One popular example, Journey Without Maps (1936), was based on a trip through the jungles of Liberia. Greene also wrote and adapted screenplays, including that of the 1949 film, The Third Man, which starred Orson Welles. He died in Vevey, Switzerland in 1991.
