Larry Bowlden reviews two novels


Larry discusses two novels by Graham Greene -- The Quiet American and Our Man in Havana.  Graham Greene was an excellent satirist and comedic writer who really understood the world of spy networks and military journalism. Our Man in Havana and The Quiet American are two of his shorter novels written in the 50s. The second of the two directs some harsh criticism of the U.S. and of American foreign policy. It is in equal parts humorous and profound.
