Don Swaim Interviews

Audio Interview with Norman Sherry
about Graham Greene

Graham Greene


Norman Sherry, author of The Life of Graham Greene series, speaks with Don Swaim in this 1989 interview about the life of the British writer, Graham Greene. Norman Sherry discusses the troubled adolescence of Graham Greene and Greene's conversion to Catholicism "for all the wrong reasons." Graham Greene worked with the infamous British traitor, Kim Philby, in the British Foreign Office during World War II, and Sherry corresponded with Philby while researching Greene's life. Sherry says The Power and the Glory is Greene's best work and other truly great novels by Greene include The Ministry of Fear, The Heart of the Matter, and A Burnt-Out Case.
