About This Item

While the French Army in Indo-China is grappling with the Vietminh, back at Saigon a young and high-minded American begins to channel economic aid to a 'Third Force.' The narrator, a seasoned foreign correspondent, is forced to observe: 'I never knew a man who had better motives for all the trouble he caused.' As young Pyle's policies blunder on into blookshed, the older man finds it impossible to stand aside as an observer. But his motives for intervening are suspect, both to the police and to himself: for Pyle has robbed him of his Annamite mistress.

Synopsis

Graham Greene (1904–1991) worked as a journalist and critic, and was later employed by the foreign office. His many books include The Third Man , The Comedians and Travels with My Aunt . He is the subject of an acclaimed three-volume biography by Norman Sherry.
