WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY NICHOLAS SHAKESPEARE In a provincial Argentinian community, Charley Fortnum - a British consul with dubious authority and a notorious fondness for drink - is kidnapped by rebels in a case of mistaken identity. Their intended victim, the young but world-weary Doctor Eduardo Plarr, is left to pick up the pieces and secure Fortnum's release, wading through a sea of incompetence and unearthing corruption among authorities and revolutionaries in the process. First published in 1973, The Honorary Consul was one of Greene's own favourites of his works and is regarded as one of his finest novels, with Plarr perhaps the most moving and convincing figure in his fiction.

La nostra recensione

Greene had the sharpest eyes for trouble, the finest nose for human weaknesses, and was pitilessly honest in his observations... For experience of a whole century he was the man within -- Norman Sherry * Independent * A superb storyteller with a gift for provoking controversy * New York Times * Greene's work attempts to link the serious moral imagination with the spirit of adventure and romance and to extend the remapping of imaginative geography first undertaken by Conrad * Times Higher Education Supplement * The tension never relaxes and one reads hungrily from page to page, dreading the moment it will end -- Auberon Waugh * Evening Standard * Perhaps the most enduring novel that even he has give us * Daily Mail *
