Graham Greene – The Last Word and Other Stories

 

It’s no secret that I’m a huge admirer of Graham Greene – he’s one of my favourite authors of all-time, after all. Here, we have a small collection of his excellent short stories dating from 19231989 – that’s over sixty years of literary excellence.

And the stories themselves are rich in diversity, kicking things off in a dystopian future in which religion is dead and war has been abolished (dystopian only because a corrupt general is pulling all of the strings and the last Pope, who’s suffering from amnesia and being somewhat poorly treated, for an old man). We also see bits of Greeneland, his typical setting described as a “poor, hot and dusty tropical backwater”, encompassed perfectly in The Lottery Ticket. Excellent reading, once again!
