"As comical, satirical, atmospherical an "entertainment" as he has given us" Daily Telegraph "He had a sharp nose for trouble and injustice. In Our Man In Havana - a witty send-up of an agent's life - it was Cuba before Castro" Financial Times "Nobody should be anywhere near power who hasn't read (or seen the film of) Our Man in Havana, a powerful satire on the silly world of spying by a man who had experienced it" Mail on Sunday "Graham Greene was a profound and experimental stylist" Time Out "The human story is warm and the satire made me laugh out loud" -- Simon Shepherd Daily Express
