WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY J.M. COETZEE
This book gives another angle on Graham Greenes view of his faith, and his own personal moral theology. He is not afraid to add to the writings of the Fathers in this respect , and the beauty of it is, that his books are the only such writings any layman, Catholic or not, is likely to read.
