On the Collector Lane
 
The Generator and the Glory

 
Nice! 
 
I am chagrined that you were able to work in Greene's greatest novel, especially after I spent no less than 45 seconds trying to come up with something myself. 
 
Can we surmise that you came up with this thread having after read Christopher Hitchens' autobiography?     If not, imagine he and his erudite pals engaging in late night, high level bathos while fully in the bag...

 

Actually, I came up with it after reading a funny novel which may have been written by one of his pals.(Colin somebody) The self-pitying protagonist is a brilliant but neglected author, reduced to teaching Creative Writing in a women's prison, who comforts himself by making up such titles ("Quarter to Three in the Garden of Good and Evil" is one example I remember.

This is also a good pre-sleep soother, like the alphabet game.

I agree, P&G was Greene's greatest. I liked Brighton Rock very much too.

 

Just finished off The Human Factor last night.   I highly recommend it.

I have ordered it at the library.  GG must have been a major influence on LeCarre, whom I also revel in.
