Lodge on Greene

In the current New York Review of Books, the inimitable David Lodge reviews the third volume of Norman Sherry’s Graham Greene biography. Greene, he says:

combined his page-turning narrative technique with a unique and unsettling vision of the world which subverted and transformed the stereotypes of popular fiction. He was also a master of English prose (something which Scandinavian readers are perhaps not able fully to appreciate). The same, alas, cannot be said for his biographer.
