Twenty-one Stories Paperback
The stories in this book, all written between 1929 and 1954, all share the themes that feature so strongly in Graham Greene's novels: humour and violence, pity and hatred, betrayal and pursuit.
Comic, sad, shocking and tragic, they recount the tales of Mr Maling's loud stomach, destructive gangs of children, indiscretions revealed and secrets uncovered, each one unmistakeably the work of the twentieth century's master storyteller.

Review by rory1000
With so much historical fiction on offer, it has been a pleasure to read some contemporary books too. The quality of the stroies in this collection varies, but this has been an enjoyable, if dark, read.
