Henry Graham Greene, OM, CH was an English novelist and author regarded as one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. Combining literary acclaim with widespread popularity, Greene had acquired a reputation early in his own lifetime as a great writer, both of serious Catholic novels and of thrillers (or "entertainments " as he termed them); however, even though shortlisted in 1967, he was never awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.

My wife and I both had vague but positive memories of having read "Travels With My Aunt" way back in the last century so we decided to give the audiobook version a try and refresh our memories. Tim Pigott-Smith is the narrator and he gives a wonderful performance, providing just the right voices ...

A young woman who has an affair with a married man returns to her Catholic family for her mother's funeral. The news of the affair does not sit well with the family. The Living Room reminded me of why I struggle with Greene's work that centres on his religious outlook - it always seems like he is ...
