Overview

Greene's fine sense of humor is displayed in this warm and far-reaching comic novel,Travels with My Aunt, a bestseller when it appeared originally. At his mother's funeral, Henry Pulling, a stuffy, retired bank manager with an interest in dahlias, meets his Aunt Augusta.

The indomitable Aunt Augusta pulls Henry along on a whirlwind adventure traveling with an old lover, Wordsworth; Curran, the founder of a doggies' church; O'Toole, the C.I.A. man obsessed by statistics and his counterculture daughter; and old Mr. Visconti, who has been wanted by Interpol for twenty years. Henry describes his activities with shock and bewilderment, and, finally, with the tenderness of a fellow traveler going their way.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The light and serious novels of Graham Green make their impression because of his phenomenal skill, his invention, and the edge and decision of his mind. He etches the conventional with the acid of the observable."

-- V.S. Pritchett, The New Statesman
