"An unusual story"
Graham Greene is an excellent writer. I love how his stories have an ending we could never imagine. I can appreciate that his work is not for everyone, but if you are a Greene fan, this is worth a read.
"Enter the world of leprosy in Africa"
With clear personal insight, Greene writes brilliantly about the disease leprosy and its impact upon life and its treatment.
