reading: graham greene

I had no idea that Graham Greene lived and worked in Capri. The novelist's moody accounts of the oppressiveness of morality and religion, Catholicism in particular, hardly seem to emanate from the sunbathed, care-free Italian coast. Serendipitously, I happened to be reading Graham Greene now (just finished The End of the Affair, working on The Heart of the Matter) and will be visiting Capri tomorrow! The New York Times has a nice summation here of Graham's relationship with the island.
