  • Graham Greene – Collected Stories

    Graham Greene – Collected Stories

    A second printing of the Collected Series of Greene short stories. Includes the entirety of previous collections titled … May We Borrow Your Husband; A Sense of Reality and Twenty-One Stories. Added to A Sense … are three stories previously not published in book form … The Blessing, Church Militant and Dear Dr Falkenheim.

    One of the advantages of the “Collected Series” is the introduction by GG himself. Here we learn how the stories came about, what makes a great short story (try Chekhov’s – The Lady with the Dog) and also GG’s struggles with the form and the problem of knowing the outcome at the start compared with a fuller form novel of “entertainment’ as he preferred for his “shorter novel” the writer can be taken down various paths unknown at the outset. Well still did a rather good job anyway and the language often in these mere morsels often unfamiliar and rewarding.

    Publishes by the Bodley Head in 1974, octavo 562 pages … 40 stories all up. Dust jacket designed by Michael Harvey. Very good condition bar previous ownership signature on free end paper.

    Graham Greene – short stories, many and varied – great bedtime reading

  • The Quiet American – Graham Greene (Collected Edition)

    The Quiet American – Graham Greene (Collected Edition)

    Turned into a classic movie (how many of Greene’s novels have not been?), with Michael Caine, based in Indo-China a striking story of new and old world

    This is the “Collected Edition” a 1989 printing. Octavo, 211 pages to the novel but with the xxx page introduction by Greene that make this issue something extra.

    A couple of innocent chips to the jacket and a gift inscription on the front end paper, otherwise a very good copy of a surprisingly hard edition to find.

  • The Third Man (Graham Greene – Anton Karas) – The Harry Lime Theme

    The Third Man (Graham Greene – Anton Karas) – The Harry Lime Theme

    Sheet Music published by Chappell & Co, London in 1950 (Catalogue number 39386). Published co-incidental with the BBC adaptation.

    A classic with special appeal for a particular generation. The theme for the film noir The Third Man … written by Graham Greene directed by Carol Reed. Here adopted by the BBC for their rendition of the classic post war drama.

    Four pages of music score, in 79 bars .. with the beautiful slower section and crescendo.

    Whilst filming on location in Vienna, Carol, Orson Welles etc were out on the town and in a wine cellar heard Anton Karas play his zither. Reed was captivated and contracted Karas to play the soundtrack. This act of genius helped to assuage what is widely regarded as the longest speechless ending in film history … check it out, again.

    Dan da dan .. dan da dan de dan ..

    Get out the schnapps and tune up the zither
