Brighton Rock

eBooks of the Month Modern and Classic Literary Fiction

LoveReading View on Brighton Rock

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.

Brighton Rock Synopsis

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

 

 

This title is presented with 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. Greene's gripping thriller, exposes a world of loneliness and fear, of life lived on the 'dangerous edge of things'.

Brighton Rock Press Reviews

'In a class by himself-the ultimate chronicler of twentieth-century man's consciousness and anxiety'

- William Golding, Independent
