First printing of this edition, reissued by Viking in 1962 with a new introduction by Greene; who explains why this book was eventually republished. He found after rereading the first edition which was first published 28 years earlier in 1934, he didn't care much for parts he had written and made changes. An intriguing novel of characters swept up in events that have a life of their own.
