    Graham Greene
    Book Description:

    English novelist, short-story writer, playwright and journalist, Graham Greene was one of the most widely read novelist of the 20th-century, a superb storyteller. Adventure and suspense are constant elements in his novels and many of his books have been made into successful films. Although Greene was nominated several times as a candidate for the Nobel Prize for Literature, he never received the award.

    Graham Greeneis a descriptive catalog of first editions of works by Greene, which are currently held in the collection of the University of Louisville. Arranged chronologically by title, Robert H. Miller, also includes letters, radio scripts, pamphlets, and subsequent editions of importance and scarcity.
