First edition of this Catholic novel set during the London Blitz, partly based on Graham Greene's own affair – adapted into two films and an opera.
Very good plus in very good dust jacket.
THE END OF THE AFFAIR
"O God, You've done enough, You've robbed me of enough, I'm too tired and too old to learn to love, leave me alone forever."
THE END OF THE AFFAIR is considered one of Graham Greene's best works in his vast oeuvre: the CHICAGO TRIBUNE called it his "finest accomplishment as a writer," praising "the magnificent meaning of the story" (4).
