Book Description
The Third Man is Greene’s brilliant recreation of post-war Vienna. Rollo Martins, a second-rate novelist, arrives penniless to visit his friend and hero, Harry Lime. But Harry has died in suspicious circumstances, and the police are closing in on his associates.

The Fallen Idol is the chilling story of a small boy caught up in the games adults play. Left in the care of the butler and his wife while his parents go on holiday, Philip realizes too late the danger of lies and deceit. But the truth is even deadlier.

    Il terzo uomo è uno dei più famosi gialli post-bellici. Meglio l'Idolo infranto

    Dal Terzo uomo è stato tratto il film con Orson Welles. Non è il capolavoro di Graham Green, ma si avverte la mano del grande scrittore.

    Graham Greene - L'idolo infranto - Trad. Gabriele Baldini

    Racconto lungo di Graham Greene di solito accoppiato al Terzo Uomo. Sceneggiatura perfetta. Molto carino. Pare che il film lo sia altrettanto, se non di più. Lo cercherò.
