Are there authors in Hertfordshire?


Graham Greene

Graham Greene was born on October 2, 1904 in Berkhampstead, Hertfordshire. His great-uncle was the author Robert Louis Stevenson. After finishing school, Greene went to Oxford and studied modern history at Balliol College. His first job was as an editor at the Times in London, after which he found a job as a film critic with the Spectator. The long journeys he undertook - including to West Africa and Asia - also became a fund for his literary work. A decisive step was his conversion to Catholicism in 1934. His first novel, The Man Within (1929, German conflict of the soul) already describes the conflict between good and evil, which is at the center of Graham Greene's work. You can find him in the crime stories as well as in the psychologically oriented novels. When The Power and the Glory appeared in 1940, Greene received the Hawthorne Prize for it. Many consider it to be perhaps his best work. He headed publishing houses twice, Eyre & Spottiswoode in the mid-1940s and Bodley Head in the early 1960s. Graham Greene died on April 3, 1991 in Geneva.
