2 October marks the anniversary of Graham Greene in 1904. Born Henry Graham Greene in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, he was educated at Balliol College, Oxford, where he wrote his first volume of poetry. After graduating he worked as a journalist on the Nottingham Journal and began writing novels. His first, The Man Within (1929), was well received and was followed by a further 27, as well as many books of autobiography, essays, travel and criticism, children’s books, plays and screenplays.

His most widely known works are the novels Stamboul Train, England Made Me, A Gun for Sale, Brighton Rock, The Confidential Agent, The Power and the Glory, The Ministry of Fear, The Heart of the Matter, The Third Man, The End of the Affair and The Quiet American.
