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.

If you like Graham Greene you might also like to read books by Brian Moore and Piers Paul Read.

Synopsis

Brighton Rock by Graham Greene

The movie of Brighton Rock opens on 4 February 2011. See a trailer below.

This title includes an introduction by J.M. Coetzee.

A gang war is raging through the dark underworld of Brighton. Seventeen-year-old Pinkie, malign and ruthless, has killed a man. Believing he can escape retribution, he is unprepared for the courageous, life-embracing Ida Arnold. Graham Greene's gripping thriller was adapted into a British film noir in 1947 starring Richard Attenborough as the razor-wielding Pinkie.
