A Sort of Life
Graham Greene's autobiography
First US edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 21.5 × 14.5cm, 220pp.
Graham Greene's 'long journey through time' began in 1904, when he was born into a tribe of Greenes based in Berkhamstead at the public school where his father was headmaster. In A Sort of Life Greene recalls schooldays and Oxford, adolescent encounters with psychoanalysis and Russian roulette, his marriage and conversion to Catholicism, and how he rashly resigned from The Times when his first novel, The Man Within was published in 1929. A Sort of Life reveals, brilliantly and compellingly, a life lived and an art obsessed by 'the dangerous edge of things'.
The book is in very good condition, the dustwrapper is a little creased to the edges and the front flap but is now in a protective sleeve and has not been price-clipped.
