Graham Greene was born in 1904 in Hertfordshire, England. His writing career took off with Stamboul Train, a political novel, in 1932. He became an international literary success, producing some of the best novels of the era, including The Power and the Glory (1940), The Heart of the Matter (1948), The End of the Affair (1951), and The Quiet American (1956). His work in the British Foreign Office during World War II provided material for his popular spy novels, Our Man in Havana (1958), The Honorary Consul (1973), The Human Factor (1978), and The Tenth Man (1985). Greene received the Order of Merit, one of Britain's highest honors, in 1986. His prolific work, which includes novels, plays, travel books, essays, children's stories, articles, short stories, letters, and autobiographies, has been translated into 27 languages and has sold more than 20 million copies. Greene is often hailed as the father of the modern spy novel. He died in 1991 in Switzerland.
