GREENE by Graham Greene
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: May 19, 1969

"It concludes with the sad apostrophe, 'How could they tell that for a writer as much as for a priest there is no such thing as success?"
Half of the essays here, including his more important sequence on Henry James, have been reprinted from Mr. Greene's 1952 collection The Lost Childhood which established in Greene's case that the creative writer could also be a critic of some distinction. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

Released: June 1, 1995

"Despite Shelden's relentless animus for Greene as a person and a writer, this propaganda campaign can neither surpass nor subvert the Greene legend. (16 pages b&w photos, not seen)"
Trying to hunt down the controversial, complex Greene (190491) as the Harry Lime of the literary racket, Shelden (Orwell, 1991, etc.) succeeds less in decoding the deceptions of Greene's life than in creating a trail of false leads. Read full book review >

MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Aug. 30, 2011

"Dependable Krueger has another all-out go at good versus evil, but in this, the 12th of his much-respected series, the straight-arrow, exemplary O'Connors might strike readers as a shade too exemplary."
The Minnesota lake is lovely and tranquil, the houseboat commodious and comfortable, the family pleasant, but then Cork O'Connor (Vermillion Drift, 2010, etc.) discovers just how deep and deadly still waters can run. Read full book review >
