Graham Greene – May We Borrow Your Husband?

 

This collection of Greene’s short stories promises to cover “comedies of the sexual life”, and it delivers on that with the author’s usual twist of brilliance. Despite the title, there’s nothing necessarily scandalous here, and definitely not in the era of Page 3 girls. A memorable scene involves a wife who says to her husband that planes make her feel erotic; he replies that it “must be the vibration.”

Greene used to categorise his work as either a serious novel or as an ‘entertainment‘ – not only is this clearly an entertainment, it’s one of the most entertaining. If you’re new to Greene and want a book that makes you smile, this is as good a place as any to start.
