Today Diane is hosting Tuesday Intros and my contribution is a book that I found on the hotel bookshelves.
We take our own selection of books away with us when we go on holiday, backed up with more reading material on kindle, but it's always interesting to look at the hotel library section and see what is on offer. The English selection is usually very thin, with far more books available in German or French. On our recent holiday I found a crumpled biography of Graham Greene which I was interested to read because I admire his work. But, oh, dear me, what an absolutely horrid man! I think the cover portrait is clever because it shows half his face in darkness and this accurately depicts his truly dark personality.
Here is the opening page.
The biography has made me want to go back and reread some of his novels. However, a production of his book, 'The Power and the Glory' has been on the radio for the last two Sundays and I found that my lately acquired knowledge of the author really got in the way of the story. A case of too much information?!
