Sarah Broadhurst's view...
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.

ReviewsThe most ingenious, inventive and exciting of our novelists... A master of storytelling -- V. S. Pritchett The Times I read Brighton Rock when I was about thirteen. One of the first lessons I took from it was that a serious novel could be an exciting novel - that the novel of adventure could also be the novel of ideas -- Ian McEwan Graham Greene had wit and grace and character and story and a transcendent universal compassion that places him for all time in the ranks of world literature -- John le Carre A superb storyteller with a gift for provoking controversy New York Times
