In Search of a Character: Two African Journals (Vintage classics)

by Graham Greene (Author)


Greene set two of his novels in Africa, A Burnt-Out Case (Yonda leper colony) and The Heart of the Matter (the Congo). They arose from separate visits during which he kept journals. The journals are printed here and provide a glimpse of the novelist responding to the raw material of his art.
