GREENE, Graham.

Rare books by Graham Greene, including first edition, signed first edition, and finely bound copies of Brighton Rock, and Heart of the Matter.

Graham Greene (1904-1991) was an English writer, critic and playwright. Rising to some standing with the publication of The Man Within (1929), Greene hastily quit his job to focus on a full-time career in writing. His next two novels failed to achieve the same positive criticism, or the critical acclaim that would come to him in later years.
