As novelist, essayist, critic and playwright, Graham Greene was one of the leading English literary figures of the twentieth century. This CD provides an overview of Greene’s life and achievements in his own words. The recordings are drawn from rarely heard BBC broadcasts together with extracts from the longest recorded interview that he gave.
Greene reads passages from several of his autobiographical works – notably In Search of a Character and Ways of Escape – and discusses in depth how his travels to far corners of the world and constant search for excitement informed his writing. Most of the recordings are being published here for the first time.
