My Graham Greene

I’ve posted here for all to see my favorite books, favorite authors, what I’m reading now. Thought it would be a good idea to put together a list of books from my favorite author – Graham Greene.

I know, I know, nothing too modern here. But morals aren’t subject to modernity (don’t say it, because you’d be wrong). Neither is faith, whether you believe in man or God or little green men. Graham Greene novels just have what appeals to me; it can be summed up in the word “exploration”. Exploration of times and places I would never have known otherwise. Exploration of what makes men do the things they do. Exploration of what men believe and what they doubt and how they choose between the two.

Explore any of these for yourself, and there are many others not listed (The Quiet American, Ministry of Fear, The Third Man, etc.), and perhaps you will discover as I have that searching for the answers to eternal questions is always modern.
