let's talk about Graham Greene

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

yeah you're right. i guess my read was that greene came off as the exact sort of person who still favoured intervention and the natural dominance of the west over the east?

i dunno, maybe i should read it again too?

Catholics still love this guy. They have a lot of imagination. But only for certain things.

This thread made me grab the copy of Brighton Rock that's been sitting around for a couple of years and I am having a fucking blast with it

just finished our man in havana which was charming, funny, and fast read. reminded me a bit of under the volcano except less despair inducing.
