Graham Greene - A Sort of Life

Graham Greene – A Sort of Life


A Sort of Life is one of Greene’s several autobiographical works, and all of them can be enjoyed independently or all at once. It’s fascinating to read about the author’s early life, including his time in Berkhamstead where his father was the headmaster of the local public school.

Here, Green covers his schooldays and his time at Oxford with surprising candour, even covering the time when he played Russian Roulette against himself to try to inject some excitement in to a life that seems fascinating to us but which seemed humdrum and repetitive to the writer.

Graham Greene is one of my favourite writers ever, and this autobiography reminds me of why I love him – his writing is consistently gripping and the way he portrays himself is more fascinating than most of his fiction.
