Graham Greene- novels and short stories

Several of Greene’s books are on the 1001 Books You Should Read Before You Die lists, though I started reading his books before I started focusing on those lists.

The first book I read by this author was The End of the Affair. I am currently reading The Heart of the Matter.

My top 3 so far from this author: The End of the Affair, Brighton Rock, Travels With My Aunt
