Synopsis (Credit: Back cover)

This frank, intense account of a love affair and its mystical aftermath is set in a suburb of London, and told with the intimate informality of the first person. The story tells of the strange and callous steps taken by a middle-aged writer to destroy -- or perhaps to reclaim -- the mistress who had unaccountably left him eighteen months before.

On the Combined 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die List.

(Bought second-hand at Help the Rural Child Charity Bookshop, Main Road, Retreat.)

Journal Entry 2 by Stoepbrak at Cape Town, Western Cape South Africa on Monday, January 23, 2012

Shortly after I bought this book, I found an unabridged audiobook version in the library. Grabbing the opportunity to gain some extra "reading" time while commuting, I therefore listened to its reading by Michael Kitchen, referring to the book only on occasion.

Why do we hurt those we love? -- That's a question you won't get an answer to in this book.

A gripping account of a very personal nature, related with intensity and honesty. Classic Graham Greene.

Man has places in his heart which do not yet exist, and into them enters suffering in order that they may have existence.
-- Leon Bloy
