The encounter in Havana’s Sloppy Joe’s bar between two mid-20th Century literary ‘giants’ is described in Chris Hull’s book Our Man Down in Havana: The Story Behind Graham Greene’s Cold War Spy Novel. Use the link below to read an extract from Chris’s book about this apocryphal moment.
Our Man Down in Havana was published on 5 March in the US with the UK edition due on 2 April. It will be reviewed in the May issue of our quarterly magazine A Sort of Newsletter. Please see an earlier post ‘Publishing News’ for further details.
Since this brief report was posted, we have learned of the death of Stanley Price. My thanks to Chris Hull for informing me of his passing.
