Champagne, if you are seeking the truth, is better than a lie detector.

– Graham Greene



born in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, The United Kingdom,  October 02, 1904


died: April 03, 1991


gender: male



Graham Greene was an English novelist, short story writer, playwright, screenplay writer, travel writer and critic whose works explore the ambivalent moral and political issues of the modern world. Greene combined serious literary acclaim with wide popularity.

Although Greene objected strongly to being described as a “Catholic novelist” rather than as a “novelist who happened to be Catholic,” Catholic religious themes are at the root of much of his writing, especially the four major Catholic novels: Brighton Rock, The Heart of the Matter, The End of the Affair, and The Power and the Glory. Works such as The Quiet American, Our Man in Havana and The Human Factor also show an avid interest in the workings of international politics and espionage.

  1. October 2, 1904: British novelist Graham Greene’s tense, terse novels have been extremely popular with filmmakers—Brighton Rock, The End of the Affair, and The Quiet American have each been adapted twice. Greene was born in Hertfordshire, 109 years ago today.

  2. Very true. I think this should be implemented.

  3. Wha a fabulous quote!!

  4. His books turned to be good movies and I can watch the End of the Affair over and over again. Ola from Posada, Spain
