It was published two years later with an introduction by the author.

    Ways of Escape (Paperback)

    Graham Greene

    With superb skill and feeling, Graham Greene retraces the experiences and encounters of his extraordinary life.

With ironic delight he recalls his time in the British Secret Service in Africa, and his brief involvement in Hollywood. He writes, as only he can, about people and places, about faith, doubt, fear and, not least, the trials and craft of writing.
