Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A superb storyteller with a gift for provoking controversy."
New York Times

“Greene had the sharpest eyes for trouble, the finest nose for human weaknesses, and was pitilessly honest in his observations . . . For experience of a whole century he was the man within.”
—Norman Sherry, Independent

This version is a mess. Ali shows up as ALL or some other word entirely, and many times there are symbols in place of letters. This made it confusing to read. The title popped up im the middle of pages, and random numbers appeared throughout. A very poor version of the book. A shame, because this is a good story.
