Twenty-One Stories – Graham Greene
A celebrated collection of stories from one of the most important British writers of the twentieth century. Features Greene’s most famous short story, ‘The Destructors’. Written between 1929 and 1954, each of these stories bears the hallmark themes that characterise Greene’s great novels: betrayal and vengeance, love and hate, pity and violence.
Opening with the iconic story ‘The Destructors’, in which a gang of schoolboys destroys a house that has survived the Blitz, Greene offers us deliciously satisfying glimpses into twenty-one worlds, with each piece written as masterfully as his novels. From the chilling climax of a children’s birthday party, to a man whose youthful indiscretions come back to haunt him, these are the unmistakable work of one of the twentieth century’s greatest and most adored storytellers.
