Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Featured on The Book Show on Sky Arts on 3 February 2011.

I just love this man’s writing.  The 17-year old, razor happy gang leader, Pinkie, is one of fiction’s great characters, truly nasty.  Despite the dated period, the underlying message is the same today as it ever was.  It is perhaps Greene’s greatest book.
